Looking for duplex manifold plate

Looking for this plate, goes on top of the air cleaner trumpet, 69 Series 2. Found one on Ebay, has the rivet holes in the 4 corners. There is one on Ebay, $18, last resort.
Duplex plate

Is there something wrong with the one you picture? Looks almost right to me.

I didn’t look but would have though ll the usual vendors carried this.

Seems like a good price?

I have an old XK’s catalog. For the 5 degree plate it calls out 16-5022. Here it is for $9 when I search at Moss.

68 E-type FHC

David, thank you so much for finding this. Don’t know why it didn’t come up when I did a search on Moss’s site. Just wanted to see if something was available at less than the $18 ebay offering.

I would have thought so, too. SNG-B,can’t find it under that search term " duplex manifold". Moss price is good, but have to buy more than $10. Could an E possibly need more?. LOL!! Want the rivet version, not the decal.

If you search for “duplex manifold” on the SNGB site it should come up. They have them. I suspect you’re falling victim to the search filter feature on the SNGB website as I tried searching that term with an S2 4.2 Etype and the search came back empty. I tried it without a model filter and three different items came up, including the one you’re after.

This website feature topic came up in another post earlier today by @davidxk -

@WoodBoatChick On the SNGB site, the part number is ID0045. The notes with the part shows is as being applicable to 1969 and early 1970 models. I imagine that it is also correct for 68s. Unfortunately, it seems that they haven’t listed the part as being applicable to any car at all (E-Type or otherwise) in their database, so if you have configured any default vehicle, it doesn’t show up in a search. Perhaps this is how someone on eBay can sell the part for $18, because they rely on folks not being able to find it on the usual’s web sites…

I have a SNG paper copy too and found it easy in there. Maybe if you are ordering some parts too they will throw one in the same box. I do not remember paying $$ for any of my catalogs but times may have changed.

Thank you for finding it on SNGb… and the reason you cited for my not being able to find it was exactly the issue. I have the plate in my cart… The Spring Work List is growing! :grin:
