I have a pair but they are not marked ! I thought they were 35 when I bought them but they were too Narrow when mounted on my engine so maybe ethey are 34/34, You are wlecome to have them for the 35 dollars I have in them plus the S&H cost.. They are useable but have some rust at the outlets. kerk

Phil,
I have some....they are originals. I machine off the rotted water snout and
and counter bore into the now solid iron. I renew the proper length snout with an iron sleeve that is step turned and pressed into the orig casting. In addition to the press fit on the sleeve I use JB long setting epoxy. No issues, some Barners are using them. I
would certainly welcome any comment either way.

Charlie's repair is GOOD.
I also have a pair that are available. Some rust-out on ends, but still usable. They have the part # cast on.

I recommend one additional step after the repairs have been completed, namely powder coating inside and out. If your powder coating source doesn't have the Ford engine green color you can always add that over the powder coating with a rattle can.
