Common problem . If you do not need original . Mine had straight on it with a flex hose to radiator and a second hose inside to fill out to size of 2 1-8" rad . Take to your local shop with stat and match flange and holes .
  Good Luck  Tom

Does have the duller look of nickel . Nickel is easily electrically applied or plated . I use to do on belt buckles instead of silver that dulls out faster . Redid my gage bezel came out decent .

Hello Chet ,  So your engine is not original paint ,your saying . I do not know about orange manifold ,where did you see  that?  Also see what Dupli. Color or Rusto. Color matches  . The salesman book on my truck with Ply. 4 says head is Gray, not Silver with block  black . Was thinking of using a aluminum color hi-temp . But discussion on aaca seems to think water cooling engine surface temp will only be about or below 210*F ,boiling point  most paints can easily with standing , excluding manifold .

Thanks Chet . Looks like my pan is same . It does not have extra hole where exhaust goes threw . That pic of tie piece is enough for me to fab a piece between . Did not know about it going under motor mount .

The boots only keep dust and dirt out to minimize wear .The cup inside holds fluid back . You may have a corroded piston . These are aluminum and sometimes the cups do not seal around good enough if bad . I would send back , piston are not ready available , although heard maybe cross to some Chevy 1-1/4" stuff .

Do you have pic  of front tie between piece . That is one I am missing . My driver side is a different I think too . Will check . Same engine but on 31 Graham truck , whom I believed used Plymouth or Desoto frames .
