In the third "runner" of the exhaust is a "rod" or something, can I take it away without leaks.
Does anybody know what function it has?

That's for the carburetor anti-ice system. It's not a rod, but a hollow sleeve. Steel lines would've been pushed into this sleeve from top and from bottom. The one from the top would've been insulated with woven silica/asbestos sleeving and would've connected to a threaded fitting on the passenger side of the carburetor base. The one from the bottom would've been uninsulated, and connected to a rubber hose which would've connected to a nipple on the underside of the air cleaner baseplate. This was optional equipment on Canadian-made \6 cars from 1960 through 1969, and was present on most of those cars. It was standard equipment on all 1969 US-market \6 cars. It seems quite logical to assume that cars destined for the Nordic countries would have the system, even if they were built in the US! :shock:

You can't remove the sleeve without causing very large exhaust leaks. It doesn't really get in the way.

Where was this info when I was struggling with carb icing? Is there a specific port on the carb for this line to route to or is it a specific carb for the system? Sorry for the hi-jack, it seemed relevant.

Then really it would be no big deal to tap and plug the 2holes, correct? Only warm weather driver.[/i]

(very tardy) Specific carbs for use with this system -- can't adapt it to a carb not originally equipped for it. Fine to leave the manifold heat pipe unused -- no benefit from tapping or plugging. On the other hand, if you have the anti-ice system (including carb) and you don't want/need it, it's fine to just run a hose directly from the air cleaner fitting to the carb fitting.
