Shaun - those inlet manifolds look like the ‘original’ Maniflow manifolds they made for fitting Weber carbs. Am I right? And what is your thinking - sorry can’t remember what you were using before - are you trying to increase the length of the inlet tract?

Yes Pete , to try and get a bit more torque. However I have an issue with TB's the butterfly arm is clashing with two headers so will fit this one to Connors c and get another made for mine. I don't want to take a hammer to them.

Went to work today to separate the non o/d gearbox from the engine and bring the box home, the o/d box is at work ready for when the engine is rebuilt..

I always suspected that the previous owner left his foot on the clutch at the lights which is confirmed with the wear eaten into the thrust housing. The clutch is worn but not yet down to the rivets, surprisingly there aren't any hot spots on the flywheel or pressure plate.

Took the opportunity to put the flywheel on the scales....hmmm. Will weigh the Denis Welch aluminium flywheel next week.

Next step to make a bracket so I can mount then engine on my stand side on using the engine mount holes and the single mount on the left side of the engine. Then the strip down shall begin and I'll be able to see if my head full of ideas are viable or the ponderings of a lunatic.
