I posted some of these photos on another thread about drilling out a broken manifold stud, but thought I should also post here as it completes the journey of re-porcelainizing my 840 manifolds. Prairie Auto Porcelain knocked out of the park. Now hoping that the porcelain finish holds up!

What a great link- I love the color the truck- you can really imagine it in action in WWI. The tires look to be solid rubber- is that right?

Got the exhaust manifold installed yesterday- brass flat washers, lock washers and 5/16 - 24 nuts. I went with the OEM gaskets from Max Merritt , using a small bead of Permatex Ultra Copper on both sides of the gaskets. The intake manifolds for the 840 are three separate pieces: two smaller horseshoe shaped pieces and a large central barrel that connects to the carburetor. I went ahead and bolted all three together prior to install, but now itís quit heavy and bulky- gonna be a two man job to bolt it up to the engine! Any thoughts or advice?

Tom, from Prairie Auto Porcelain just sent me a photo of my finished manifolds- theyíre so pretty, Iím tempted to hang them on the wall just to look at!!

They do great work- canít wait to install them.

Was able to drill out and retap the broken stud hole. Just got some Packard green paint (Bill Hirsch) to touch up around the manifolds. Will post a photo after all complete. Thanks for everyoneĎs help!
