What manifold is this?

Ok, so I've been looking everywhere for a gasket for this exhaust to intake manifold connction for my new-to-me-jeep.

I had assumped it was OE until I saw "CHINA" stamped on the front. I haven't been able to identify it with any of the numbers stamped on it. Do you recognize what this is?

Are you finding that one from a parts store doesn't fit or something else?

That is an early to mid 70s 232/258 manifold. You can see the pipe that attaches to the choke pipe that passes through the manifold. Later chokes used electric choke coil, not pulling air through the exhaust manifold to aid choke operation.

IIRC, that style is still in use in some parts of the world. I do not ever remember seeing "China" on one of those, and I have handled hundreds of them. But carbed engines are still sold outside the US, and I would guess China is the place to make those in the last 20 years.

Old production equipment is rarely scrapped, just sold to foreign countries. A company in Israel makes a kicking looking YJ, using old tooling, I am sure.
