Wanted - F135 intake manifold 'collars'. There are three, indicated below as #9 and #10 in the image. They are metal rings that are split...which I'm sure most on this sub-forum are very aware :).

I could attempt to fabricate some but I am clueless as to the dimensions.

They have been long NLA and even SOR doesn't have any.

Please help!

Not sure I want to sell mine but I don’t mind loaning one out for you to replicate. If you don’t find a set to buy shoot me a PM.
Thanks for the offer!

If I can't find a set by the time I'm ready to reassemble the engine, I'll likely try to run sans collars. If that creates issues and still haven't sourced any then I'll take you up on the loan offer!

I saw your build post JP with those pretty collars in place, figured you’d know the story on them. What’s their purpose, maybe to keep the gasket aligned during manifold install?
