ID Needed Please, Unknown Manifold Heater Shroud

Post by BHarper » Wed Jan 15, 2020 12:26 pm

Greetings All,

This exhaust manifold heater shroud needs to leave my shelf for a new home. I have no idea what engine it is for. It is not for any Ford that I am familiar with. It looks to fit onto an exhaust manifold on the left side of the engine, given the orientation of the cast in letters. I like to think that one of you will know what this will fit to. Someone could be pleased and warmed to have it.

Manufactured by the Remington Auto Heater Corp.

Forensics questions.
One would expect that the manufactures company name would be upright when mounted.
Would it sit on top of a manifold or the side of it. Then what side of the engine left or right?
How would this be attached to a manifold or whatever - there are no bolt holes.

Here is a different brand, but you can see the similar fit.

Hello Tim,

Well, that does look to be "same church, different pew." Thank you so very much.
I wondered if it was for "one of them Bow Tie cars." Now to see if it can find a new home. This forum and all of its members is a wealth of knowledge. Thank you again, Bill

I would imagine that the "bump-out" should correspond with a bump-out on the exhaust manifold. Since it is near one end of the shroud, not the other, and most intake/exhaust manifold combinations have such bump-outs near the middle where the exhaust is used to warm the crude gasoline of the day, I would surmise that it would be for a six cylinder engine. '20s Buicks were common sixes, but there were many others. And it could be for a '29/'30 Chevrolet?
Just a couple thoughts.
