Aftermarket manifolds

I posted a "Want to Buy" message for an AC B manifold. Thought I would get a few offers from individuals that had "junkers" laying around with useable manifolds. Instead I've received nearly a dozen messages from dealers offering "US-made" or "non-OEM" (imported?) manifolds. Prices range from the 80's to close to $150. Has anyone used the non-OEM manifolds? Is there such a thing as an authentic AC manifold--are they still available from AGCO?

Just wondering what everyone else has been using when the manifold goes bad. Thanks,

Kevin (1938 & 1939 B)

Keven: We bought a new AC185 many years ago thinking we wanted a new american made tractor. Imagine our suprise when we had starter trouble and our dealer told us it was a Lucas built in England. About 14 years later when the tractor needed a overhaul cast onto the connecting rods MADE IN JAPAN . so much for made in America. Incedently the tractor served us very well and we now have 6080 and I'm told the rear end and transmisson is Fiat.. so don't be upset by the foreign built stuff' its beenwith us for a long time. jimg

I just got a new manifold for my WD earlier this summer. I was faced with the same options. Then I thought, the American made one is more, but could I live with an import on a 100% American made tried & true machine? I figured the poor thing would never run again, or flip me over backwords. Imagine a nice made in Japan casting on the 'ol' girl. :>(

I have bought a couple after market manifolds one for a WC and another for WD. One says made in US both look a lot a like. But it seems I have to crank the engine longer when cold to pull gas up to engine before it starts. Runs good when warmed up maybe imagining this. (don't think so) Would like to know what AC sells for replacement.
