1957 mercury intake manifold?

Recommended Posts

<span style="text-decoration: underline">Where can I get an intake manifold for my <span style="text-decoration: underline">1957 Mercury Monterey with a turnpike cruiser engine</span>(368 cu. in.)?</span> My intake manifold is <span style="text-decoration: underline">cracked right beneath the thermostat housing</span>, so I took it off, beveled the crack, and put JB weld on it. I put it back on today and the JB weld cracked right where the old crack was. So I roughed up the old JB weld today and I am going to put more JB weld on it tonight. I need a new intake manifold.

Does your intake look like the one in the photo?

I would think that all Y-blocks used the same intake manifold just the way that the later FE intakes interchanged (well, except for high-risers). I bet you will find that except for displacement, the 368 and 312 are identical. Mercury usually got bigger engines than the equivalant Ford. Lincolns, usually, were even bigger.

You have a lincoln y block The only parts that will interchange are the oil pump & distributor. Ford y block is not the same. The only mamifold that will fit is 57 lincoln or 57 merc.T P C. Hope this helps.
