We just purchased the vehicle listed above (plow truck). Found out the exhaust manifolds were kinda patched together with JB Weld so been on the search and found these. These are off of a 1968 Dodge Coronet with a 318. Just looking to me they look like they'll work, but that is why you guys are the pros.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello, I'm Danny.

The bolt pattern does look similar. Have you had a chance to mock them up and see if they bolt directly to the cylinder heads with no issues? You might have to do a little tweaking to get the actual exhaust pipes to mount to the manifolds. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.

No this is something I am interested in purchasing. I spoke with the seller on Ebay, and he has no clue, will not guarantee fittment, as I told him. Good call, so hoped you all knew something. We may not need to replace ours, but, thanks, I will keep you posted as I find out. Thank you, H.K.

Okay, cool, i'm still researching on this end too, from two separate mechanics so far, one says yes they'll fit, other said probably not to likely, could be slight different in bolt pattern alignment.

This is the last message from the seller, but I have no idea what he's talking about. Maybe you can put it in layman's terms. Lol.

Hello again.

Okay, I'll look into it tomorrow and get back to you then. By the way I had a 1981 Ramcharger 4x4 but what was cool was it was the 360 cubic inch V8 ! Have you tried any local pick-a-part yards in your area?

Hello again,

Haha, I couldn't begin to tell you, all I know is the engine is a 318. Is there a digit in the vin? To help me differentiate, with which one on your list here? Sorry, not that knowledgeable in this matter.

Hello again.

Okay, take a look at the equipment sticker located under the hood. It's usually affixed to the radiator support or on the underside of the hood. It will say "This vehicle conforms to CA or Federal emissions standards" If your truck has a smog pump it will be mounted to the engine and is belt driven. Lines from this smog pump will tap into the exhaust manifolds. If you can take a video of all the stickers under hood and the front of the engine and upload here and I can decipher. Hope this helps and thanks again for using 2CarPros.

Hey Danny. Well I have been so engrossed with working on the passenger side, ( mainly because that's where the major leak was at, and the plow hydraulics) that I didn't pay close enough attention to details. These pics show and tell, I'm such an idiot.

As Homer would say (DOH!)

I've attached pictures below of the Hollander part numbers. These are numbers used that are universal to any salvage yard or parts stores. Your truck is Federal emissions without air. Hope this helps and keep me updated. Thanks again for using 2CarPros.
