What intake is this?


Recommended Posts

I got this intake with the 302 that came with a 1972 Mustang. I was told by the previous owner that it is a Weidend. I did a Google search and nothing in the Wiedend line looked like this.

I did find an Offenhauser that looked close. But everything I found has csting identification. This one has nothing. Just a few numbers on the bottom.

More of a curiousity. This intake will be sold with the motor (assuming the engine runs well).

It could be a "Weiand" at the most...

I have an Offenhauser and they have their name on it with casting a number.

Offenhauser could be maybe?

Just an idea.

 

That actually looks like an Edelbrock SP2P (single-plane / dual-plane). They don't make it anymore. It's not really a "performance" manifold it's designed to improve low-end torque and increase fuel economy.

http://www.mustangtek.com/FordIntake.html this link shows lots of ford intake manifolds.

 

Was it in fact installed on your 302?

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

This intake was installed on the 302. I have not heard it run or used it yet (see my 1972 Mustang mechanical rebuild thread). But I will know in about a month or two how it runs with htis intake and a 600 CFM Holley.

Another possibility is that it had those markings and they were ground off and the manifold was bead blasted afterwards. I have a highly polished 351C 2V intake that was detailed and polished in this manner (not terribly well done either) that only has a number on the bottom-I'm pretty sure it is an edelbrock, but who can be sure these days?

Offenhauser model 5691, split single plane aluminum intake manifold for 221, 260, 289, or 302 small block Windsor. Square bore 4 barrel carburetor flange.

 

http://www.summitracing.com/parts/ofy-5691 5691 no longer available but another similar part is referenced...

Thanks Boss1Ray, that is the conclusion I came up with. If someone did grind off the casting identification, they did a good job. Reading that description, I am not sure that it would be a good intake for a basic stock 302. Since I do not know what the cam is in this motor, maybe it will be fine. Either way, it was free and that is the best kind of part I am not afraid to try.

Free is good - but it looks like a crappy intake with huge runner volumes and poor fuel charge velocities. It would definitely be a low end performer at best. But for a street car just about any manifold will get you down the road OK.

 

Looks like it was a very vintage 1960's prototype that somehow made it out into the real world. There are always odd and unmarked intakes at swap meets - I have been know to buy the stranger ones just for giggles.

 

I bet it has been on a bunch of 289's and 302's over the years - LOL.

 

I came across a 427 dual quad - dual plane manifold with the carb mounts turned 45 degrees - it has 6 inch bolt on risers that are twisted like a spring to straighten out the carbs.(???) It is missing one of the twisty risers so I have never ran it. Anyone got one laying around?

 

I got a bid of $1600.00 years ago to make a cast copy of one I do have.

 

I just said no.....
