Default What does this intake manifold fit ?

Is this intake manifold an early Lincoln V-12 or even a Ford product ?

Yes, it is a V-12 intake, even though the runners make it look like an EIGHT cylinder intake. Check the 8 intake ports atop the V-12 block. DD

Thank again V8. What confounded me was the 8 ports for a V-12. I can see how the ports are siamesed. The photo of the V-12 engine cleared that right up. A picture is worth lots guesswork. Is this manifold an early one, as I believe I have seen other V-12 manifolds that looked different.

.

For you "non-believers" out there, these V-14s are not all that rare.

To answer the "tubman's" question, balancing probably ain't cheap 'cause of the extra math involved. DD

It is amazing that one little two barrel carb can mix enough fuel and air for all those cylinders.

Not really when you think about a 283 Chevy, for instance, or even a 307 Chevy V-8 with 2 bbl. carbs. The Lincoln V-12 was a "mighty" 267 cu. in.....ONLY 12 inches bigger than a 255" Merc. DD

Yeah, but Ford engineers decided the Merc needed a bigger carb. You would think they would have wanted a larger one for this as well. Perhaps nothing suitable was available at the time. I had a Stromberg at one time that had "LZ" on it rather that "97"' was that a larger carb?

Edit : As to the 283's and 307's; they have Rochester 2G's that flow at least twice as much as a 94 or 97.

What a neat mill....i want one just to look at..."Got 14 cylinders and use them all, overdrive tranny, she just won't stall......." A real "hot rod Lincoln! 4 carbs instead of 3.
Sounds pretty cool to me. Tubman, LZ; Lincoln Zepher ???

Heard that it added 47 lbs. which required a special front spring package for the suspension.

I have never seen or heard of a V14 Ford or Lincoln engine, until now, and can find no history of one, so when were these made?
