1953 Case SC Manifold

On my 1953 Case SC, the intake and exhaust manifold bolt to the engine as a single unit. The exhaust part of it comes out the top and turns outward to clear the hood. The top of this 90 degree corner is rusted away leaving a hole about 3/4" or more in diameter. It looks like this top part of the manifold can be taken off but it is so rusty that I cannot tell if it is bolted on or what holds it there. If I can get it off without ruining the rest of the manifold, I can make a new piece up out of a flat plate and some steel tube. Can anyone fill me in on whether this top piece does actually come off and, if so, how is it done?

Ww had the same problem on my SO. Got the old elbow off and my dad welded up a replacement out of some stainless steel stuff we had lying around. Piece of flat plate, a water-pipe type of elbow, and a short piece of tubing. Ground it all down so you can't tell it started as a water elbow. Worked great and will outlast the rest of the tractor I think..... ..... ... Anyway it is possible and practical to make your own replacement if you are into fabrication. Kirk.

Get your manifold off in good shape and take it to a "Good" machine shop. I had one that had an iron threaded elbow slopped onto what was left of the original elbow. The old nuts were one big piece of gall. I took it in, and the first thing the ol' boy said was "You ain't got taps broke off in there, do ya?"! I didn't and he got 'em machined out, ground flat and helicoiled all for $30 bucks. Said if the taps had been in there, it might ruin the manifold getting 'em out...no guarantees then. I got an elbow from Don and it's good as new.
