Before the scrap man returns to the street does anyone want these manifolds - not urgently as I have currently nothing to post them in.

I have just fitted a pair of SS manifold and found them to be quieter ( to my surprise ). Taking the old ones off I was told that the studs would ( unlike the Essex ones ) not break - 4 did - all on the bottom row. Fortunately the new manifolds are not as thick and as the studs broke at the nuts there was sufficient length left to fit new nuts. I would advise anyone who is removing a manifold to cut the nuts off first - not easy I know but easier than fitting new studs. Photo of a stud which did not snap shown so you can judge how much thinner the new manifolds are.

There is no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.

Unfortunately I will not be at Curbs - if the panels are in a big enough box then I can send them to you using it - hint - don't forget to let me know how much the panels are - I have sent you money before so a repeat is not a problem.

Just got a PM from Hylton who can carry them down to Curbs for me - all I have to do is get them to him.
