    I’m looking for a pair of (2x) pickup or police engine oil fill tubes (like this)
    84 FSM pg 435.JPG
    The item # 10 (in orange).
    I have a surplus of caps, currently.

    Also looking for a pair of (left and right) exhaust manifolds for 318 or 360 police (BFJMR-body). Would prefer to get one with left side oxygen sensor hole – but will survive if one doesn't the oxygen sensor hole. I’m not worried about the condition of right side exhaust flap valve (if present).
    Also need the Left side heat stove (if present).

    Note: I had a pair of police exhaust manifolds a few years back – but they grew legs during a move, it appears. Now, I need them . . .

    If you have either, can you make a post both here as well as send me a PM with price(s), I would appreciate it.

    I would also like to know the exhaust manifold(s) casting numbers, as well, please.

    Thank you,
    BudW

    Did you locate your manifolds?

    Here is a set dated 1977. I also have a oem 4bbl intake dated 76 which I think was off a police car.

    The intake wouldn’t matter if police, or not. The exhaust manifolds, yes.

    That intake would not work for a car with the newer (‘78/79 to 89) aluminum C-171 A/C compressor (which I have).

    How much for the exhaust manifolds and what are the casting numbers on them?

    I have manifolds coming off my J body, it's got an oil filler tube one side only on valve covers I removed, and it's a thermoquad intake coming off too. Not sure if you found your parts but I'm in Vancouver BC

    I’m not needing an intake.

    The oil filler pipe and exhaust manifolds – I am still looking for.

    I had forgotten about this thread (and still waiting for an answer from XfbodyX, as well – on exhaust manifold casting numbers . . .).

    The exhaust manifolds that XfbodyX do appear to be the ones I’m looking for (but would prefer the Left side with the Oxygen Sensor port, though – if possible) – but would like to make sure, via casting numbers, first.

    Using XfbodyX’s picture, the casting date is in green oval (which says 2.17.77, from picture listed above). The casting number is in red oval – and I just can’t make it out.

    The manifold marked 2/17/77 is 3870337-1 the other is 4041466 and no date.

    A quick search sorta tells me these are 76-80 truck manifolds but I took them off a 77 aspen with a 318 that someone put duals on. The car was built in March 77 so my thoughts about them being org. to the car dont seem so.

    The dates are not a problem – in your case.
    On some things, like manifolds, Chrysler does a mass castings on one part, then move on to cast something else for a while (and so forth). Then, in that group, the item cast the earliest is often the part to get machined the last (oldest gets piled up in a corner with newer castings piled up in front. Then as supply is needed (or as machine shop catches up) they grab the newer piles first, getting to older castings last – if that makes sense).
    I have seen castings about three months older than car itself and it was an original part. I have also seen original engine blocks 8-9 months older than car itself is - and still be an original part.


    The passenger side Is what I call a pickup part – but it was also used in cars (so pickup might not be the best word choice). My ’77 318 2-bbl wagon has both of the same exact part numbers on it.

    The 318 4-bbl police (and 360 cars) uses larger exhaust manifolds – which is what I’m looking for. Place both versions side by side and you can see the difference (318 2-bbl vs. 318 police/360).

    XfbodyX, your exhaust manifolds are not the ones I’m looking for – BUT, it appears you do have a pair of desirable manifolds.

    Example of the drilled holes.
    I can’t make out in the pictures, but it appears (red circles) there are no A.I.R. holes drilled into either manifold (but can’t see the pictures very well).
    IF your manifolds do not have holes drilled into them – then I bet there are people would like to get ahold of them (installing a newer engine into an older car, getting rid of emission items, and so forth.

    XfbodyX - I would like to purchase the two exhaust pipe flanges - if possible (white arrows). One may have to cut the bolts to free them, possibly. Send me an conversation with prices, please.

    The driver’s side is for a car only.
    The passenger side can be either for truck, van or for a car.
