ford manifold hotank

Hi, we are in the process of emptying out my dad's garage and came across a ford manifold with original carburetor. My cousin suggested getting it hot tanked. Any suggestions where I could go in the Los Angeles area?

Unless the intake is special or rare. It will cost more to clean than it's worth. I don't know about the left coast but here hot tanks are about extinct, courtesy of EPA.

Agreed, more details would be helpful (what engine is it for? single carb? 2 or 4 barrel? etc). If you just want to clean it up, get a can or two of engine degreaser (oven cleaner works well too) and wash it up.
