Book Excerpt: 1965-1975 Ford Tractor Service Manual Series 2000-7000
The aluminum alloy intake and cast iron exhaust manifolds are on opposing sides of the cylinder head providing better heat distribution in the head with less heat being transferred to the intake manifold. Tractors can be equipped with exhaust manifolds for either horizontal or vertical exhaust systems.
Diesel intake manifolds are connected through tubing to the air cleaner. The diesel engine intake manifold is provided with a tapped hole for installation of a thermostat or an ether cold starting aid kit.
The gasoline engine intake manifold is a water-jacketed design, providing a constant circulation of coolant around the intake main runner to control the intake manifold temperatures.
Note: On diesel tractors where cold start equipment is not installed, the plug assembled in the manifold should remain securely assembled at all times, failing this considerable damage to the cylinder bores could result from its absence. The cylinder bores can also be damaged by grit and other foreign matter passing through the air cleaner hose connections if they are not properly secured.
This manual is perfect for the restorer or anyone working on one of these vehicles. Clear illustrations show exploded views as well as component details and more.
