Hoping exhaust will fit?

My 66 f100 2wd swb has a 73 302 4spd, the rt ex manfold is cracked. I'd like to keep the exhaust stock like it is now, manifolds with single exhaust. The only thing that I've found that seems close is for 65-73 mustangs. Can't find 73 truck manifolds anywhere. The ? is will this bolt right into my truck? Seeing that I've put 73 stock exhaust parts in it over the past 19 yrs of ownership, maybe this will work? Or are there major differences I'm not aware of? In other words 73 302 4spds should be somewhat the same and it seems like I've got alot of room under there. Any help would be appreciated, thankx

How bad is the crack? You can't weld it back together?

No skills for that. And how long before the other side is in the same condition anyway? Guess I need to get a closer look at the pipes at mustangs unlimited to make a determination, maybe hotrodding and keeping things simple are two different things. Thankx for the suggestion.

You could bring it to a welder and have him do it. It's a hell of a lot cheaper than buying new manifolds.

I thought you were kidding but, I checked also. The 390 & I6 manifolds can be found easy but no 302 manifolds.
I bought manifolds for my 71 C10 on Ebay, got both new for less than $50. All the parts stores wanted $120 each. I guess the Chinese don't like the 302.

Don`t waste your time with manifolds, get some headers. Headers not only flow better, they help power and fuel economy. Stock Ford heads need all the help they can get on the exhaust side due to the small, cramped nightmare called a exhaust port. If you want to keep the exhaust single because you don`t want it loud, you can have a dual system run with thrush turbo mufflers and a cross over pipe. It`ll be almost as quiet as stock, but the benefits will be it`ll sound alot better than stock, more power and better fuel economy.

My buddy in TN said I should do the header dual exhaust thing as well, might be the way to go, I figure if I'm going to continue to use it as my daily ride eventually there will be nothing stock left. Thankx for the input.
