We have a member here in Australia, that has fitted a down draft manifold, to suit twin carbies
to his 1929 roadster, instead of using the original updraft original carby version.

I need help to identify if the manifold that is currently for sale on eBay, at the following url, would suit, or could be adapted to suit, a 1928 / 1929, 341-A engine.

Seller advises that this manifold would suit 1932 - 48 Cadillac engines.

Pictures are included for your reference, and any assistance would be helpfull.

Cad341, Why not take some exhaust-pipe and make an intake manifold.  I knew a yong man in Gt. Falls, MT that made intake manifolds for the old stove-bolt six Chevy engine  from exhaust-pipe and plate steel. From the price of that-one on ebay, you could make several. Good Lock,JIM

 Your listing says it fits 32-48 ,but the ad says 37-48. The engine in a 28-29 ( actually 27-35) is a completely different architecture than a 36-48. It is very unlikely this manifold can be made to work . As was previously said , I would start over from scratch and make what I  needed.Warren
