Default Caterpillar 30 Intake Manifold

Hello everyone. I am looking for a Caterpillar Model 30 intake manifold. I have heard rumors about someone in California recasting these manifolds, but I haven't been able to track down any information. I have found several places that have old ones for sale, but they are usually in tough shape.

If anyone has a suggestion or information I would really appreciate it.

Paul, I have been fixing broken and rotted antique manifolds for three years now, I can e-mail you pic's of some of the repairs that I did if you want. I used to braze them with brass,(ugly & will not hold paint ),but I have discovered a reliable method of nickle repair that really works! .I live in south MN. and can probably fix one or more of the manifolds you refer to as tough. I will put some coffee on.
