good day all,

progress so far using a combination of
Image Image


and tremendous lack of skill

Image
Image

I have managed to get the big crack down to metal ( was quite deep and I was worried about the mounting area) - just flattening left - but I think i may struggle to get the manifold looking like ' the correct way' as posted by Mr' CNHSS1'
I wont post the pics of how my drill is braced :shock:

I will crack on to try and get more metal removed\smoothed but hopefully its going to end well.

have a lovely day

Ta

Manny

good day all,

as i am nearing the point of reinstalling the turbo bits in the car -
I have emailed a company requesting a set of new banjo bolts and washers.
Does the oil drain pipe-sump also need a washer?

the manifold will be shotblasted and turbo surface flattened

The oil drain stub from turbo core usually has a two bolt flange fixing with a paper gasket

Ah different core than normal.
I suspect thats a pipe thread so slightly tapered, its under naff all pressure so unlikely to be an issue

cool...thanks for that sir...now you got me intrigued.....were the cores for the T2 different depending on the end installation? - or is mine not the standard unit as fitted by the factory.

this is how the manifold now looks...have i done enough?

Manifolds perfect! You should have no more issues there 8)
To be honest that may be the oem reliant fitting thinking about it, had so many T2/25/28 frame turbos i cant remember. Wont make any difference which it is so long as it drains from core :-)

If exhaust manifold the powder coating will melt off in minutes!
Ive used VHT paint and it stays on for a goodly while tbh, much better than i thought. I have some video somewhere of Batmobile on the rolling road, full boost, flat out and the exh manifold is a bright orange colour!!!! and still tge Halfords VHT black paint stayed on 8)

good day all,

well ...it is shiny now but...

Image

as its cast...is it just a door stop now :( ...or can it be salvaged by low power welding? I did ask the shot blasting chap....'fornicated' was his response :( :(

boo hoo

I had one go in same place and an elbow. My tame superweldingman welded the manifold but not without some hassle, special rods andc all that, but he reckoned the elbow was even lower quality material, his exact words were 'floor sweepings', so you may well recover it, but id take it to a specialist. Alternatively, could you drill out and create a threaded bung?
