    Eventually managed to get my LH exhaust manifold fixed after the flange cracked off on the Watagans trip last month and no one willing to try re-welding it. It turned out to be a one off special with the flange at an odd angle so no chance of a replacement but a foundry in Sydney I dealt with for 25 years or so were able to braze it back together. Back on now and working fine but not sure what will happen if it gets really hot!

    I think mine started out like that Hunno but it had been cut and welded at a different angle before I got it. Some others are fairly similar but not near enough and would have meant changing the front end of the exhaust system, which would have been a real pain bearing in mind it's a V8 with 2 pipes into 1 near the front.

    An old friend of mine in England spotted a Jeep recently and recognised the EUJ458 number plate. It was the one I had in 1964 and fitted the Triumph TR3 engine in from my written off car (see #26,page 3 of this thread). Now 55 years later it has been fully restored and is still running with my TR3 engine.

    Must go alright with the TR3 motor, seems like it is about the same power as the 2lt ford motor from the 70's that was in the Aussie Escorts and the UK 2.0lt Cortina so gives me something to compare it to
