Gwhite, these are just polished.
Love it! Sent you a PM...lemme know if you got it!
I think I got it but don't know how to reply, missed that day

Comment about the Winfield single down draft manifolds made by Winfield. The carburetor mounting flange is milled on an angle usually 3 degrees + or - 1/2 degree so that when installed the carburetor is close to level. If mounted as an updraft they would/could be close to 5 degrees off level.
the reason for my inquiry is Im getting geared up to add more products to my line of cast alloy parts and wondered if there was a desire for a heated intake, I thought I read somewhere of someone with a hopped up T with a down draft that when driven far had issues with icing up in the carb , but only on a long trip
What does your line of cast parts consist of at present ?
Subaru lift kit components for offroad ; engine weber intake for same
Heating the manifold is something I have thought about as mine twin strombergs on a Thomas manifold get cold almost the point of icing after running at highway speeds on anything other than hot days
1 fix is to run with a hood then it is fine but I prefer without
question is how to heat I have thought about running water tubes around the manifold just not sure about the look ?
I am trying this heated base from Imperial Speed and Custom, Washington State. Can report back in a couple weeks on it's performance. If this photo does not post, feel free to email for a photo firstname.lastname@example.org
I know @MrModelT is running two of those heated bases like the post above.
Perhaps he will chime in.

Very interesting I wonder if that would work with exhaust gas instead of water ?
Many stock manifolds run exhaust gas heaters over the years.
heres something I found on a model T
and a Image
he found that the icing went away and the performance went up
I posted this up over on Ford Barn...would be curious to get opinions here as well since this forum tends to be more performance oriented.
I'm running a splash-oiled babbitt bottom end A motor with a Scat crank...would it hurt (or help) anything to run a Stipe hi-volume oil pump? Probably a lot of money for not much benefit if I were buying one at full-retail, but I've got a line on a new one for dirt cheap and tend to trust Bill's stuff over some of the remanufactured junk that sometimes comes from the vendors.
If any thing I would relieve the shaft on the stock pump for a little more volume. If it is a terrific deal buy it in case you decide to build a pressure lubricated engine. All you need now is enough to fill the dipper tray. On my current build I'm planning on using a stock pump.
Thanks Bill! Any thoughts on adding a bypass oil filter to a splash-oiled system?
So I picked up this dual updraft that was a buy it now on Ebay because it looked cool. I need a new stock exhaust manifold(this one is brand new never used) and a carb so even though I overpaid, the workmanship of the welds on the second intake pipe are really nice. So now the question is does anyone think I can actually get it to work or it is even worth it, the linkage seems to be the most difficult to figure out as I assume it needs to be progressive. If not I will rebuild the carbs, use the exhaust manifold and the intake will become wall art.
There was an article in the Restorer about those. I believe it's a Charlie Yapp design. I would contact him about it.
You can go to the C Yapp scalded dog web sight and download the S O S S archives index. I remember the article and there was supposedly improved performance.
Has any body started a March banger meet?
