    IIRC the Al mani's came on feather Dusters, along with Al. bumper(s) and front sheet metal. What else were they used on? Chrysler also tried /6 Al. blocks in the early 60s or 50s. Only a few 100 made it out the factory parking lot before the project was ended. None are known to exist.

    There are two different versions of aluminum 2-bbl /6 intakes out there.
    The ones used for the feather dusters (A-body) – Chrysler took the cast iron molds and used it to make aluminum versions, out of (early to mid ‘70’s). I don’t “think” any of these got used on F-bodies (could be wrong, though).

    The newer version aluminum intakes were a two-piece design that is welded together. I hadn’t weighed them – but the 2-piece design is a tad lighter than the older one-piece aluminum intake.
    I think the two-piece version came out about ‘81-82 (maybe) and was used until end of production.

    If a person is getting a super six intake – it is highly recommended to get all of it (carburetor, throttle cable, kickdown linkage, choke, air cleaner and exhaust manifold) – as an assembly.


    Chrysler aluminum intakes do have a pitting problem where exhaust gasses makes contact to it.
    I’m not aware of any other problems with /6 aluminum intakes – except for where it attaches to the exhaust manifold.

    The sorta square flange (above) where the Intake meets the exhaust, sometimes you will have pitting where the gasket touches the intake. If you have that problem, you can take intake to a machine shop who can machine a bit off - just enough to remove the pitting. Then just use two gaskets (2x) when bolting the manifolds back together.

    The exhaust heated Long Ram intakes and (high mileage) street Hemi's have the same problem with pitting.

    Not correct. Thousands (approx 45,000) of 225 cid aluminum slant sixes were installed in mid 1961 to early 1963. There are many still running, today. However due to poor maintainance of the cooling system, by owners, the blocks corroded, and wound up in junk yards. Here is more info.
    Here is a little background and history on the Aluminum Block Slant Six engine

    I thought more than 100 were made. I also thought a lot less than 45,000 were made as well.
    That said, I am not a /6 expert and not something I keep on top of, or read much about.
    All of them were made before I was born.
