5488 exhaust manifold

One of my 5488’s has a bad exhaust leak through the manifold joint. I’ve tried the Caterpillar exhaust sealant, the tractor just laughed and blew it out. I think it’s time for a new manifold. I can find a part listing for the back half but not the front half. Am I correct in assuming that the front half for the 88’s is the same part as the rear half for the 66’s and 86’s?

The front manifold is unique to the 50 series, 18 series cotton pickers and Super 70 series.  The 66-86 series front manifolds are different. 

Do you have a part number for the front manifold?  Out of curiosity, what’s the difference? Length?
