Chris Craft 283 exhaust manifold replacement

Post by kjhoffman » Thu Oct 19, 2017 11:25 am

Hi all,

I am assembling a flywheel forward Chris Craft 283. I have been told that the Barr replacement exhaust manifolds won't work because of an internal casting change and that Osco manifolds are no longer available. I have been also told that original Chris Craft log manifolds with casting dates from the early 70's and earlier will work but from he late 70's will not. Does any one know the exact casting dates that will work or can the log be visually inspected to see if it has the correct passages for a three pass system that the 283 conversion needs.

Thank you,
Sloboter
