Dead mouse aside, nothing like the smell of an old car that had been sitting for years all shut up, that bring back memory's of when I was a kid, every time I get in one. Love it! :)

Re: Manifold Gland Rings

The "Green book" show 1928 to 1934 with a B part number. As of it's printing in 1948 they had been discontinued being supplied thru Ford.

Ruth thank you for the correction on the year.

Re: Manifold Gland Rings

If Ford only used then in 1928 then why are all the blocks and exhaust manifolds machined for them?

Re: Manifold Gland Rings

Except for a short time in I think 1930 (and then on only a few engines) all Model A engines used them. If Ford did not think they were important he would not have used them. all the engines we do...
