Chrysler Crown Marine Engine -- Question(s)?

I am trying to hunt down a few pieces of information on a ~1949 6cyl Chrysler Crown Marine engine.

Can anyone here direct me to where I should looking?

Questions:

1. (Engine model?): The boat is new to me and I am unsure which model engine I have. The exhaust manifold is embossed: "Chrysler Marine Engine". The engine plate states:

MBNo: E-13451-M
Ser. no.: 12650
IFC

I believe (??) it is a 1949(ish) M-47 "Crown" model (but prior owner thinks its an "Ace") with dual carburators, but I'm not sure.

2. (Manifold supplier?): Does anyone know where I would be able to get a replacement exhaust manifold? Mine is cracked on the outside, also the inside I suspect.

Thanks folks,

Brian

Maybe Sierra Boat Company? They do a lot of "original" restorations:
