Snyder's has the heavy, cup shaped washers for $4.75 a set. The problem is you'll probably pay more for the shipping than the washers.

So what's all this about manifold washers? Will my manifold get dirty without one? Is it a dry cleaning process, or is there a jug of soap and water included?

Vacum or electric?

They're pictured in the judging standards. I've never seen one for real.

Hey glenn,
Hm, 'judging standards'....never have seen one of those myself !

I just have cans of 'stuff' old original Ford bolts, etc. I know that I have a few of those manifold washers, that are very thick and curved a bit.
Just didn't know that one year A Model might be different than other Model A years ?

Here's the picture from the Judging Guidelines. The early 28 is the one on the right.

Glen,

I do not believe any one is making the early 28 manifold washer.

I was lucky that they were still on the original engine in A 1276.

Glenn, Doc Kalinka had some sets of new ones a few years back that someone had made. They looked spot on. I don't know if he still has sthem but might know someone who does.

Mick Isbell was the guy that made the repro ones. I don't think anyone has done it sense he did.
