Gotta buy one. Moss sells the branch water pipe for the TC and TD.

What is the difference between the two? I've got a late TC/early TD engine and a TC radiator.

Thanks

Wow $112! Is the TC one made of titanium? I don’t have both to compare side by side,

Yea, that's quite the bump in cost, huh?

Only 125 from FTFU. I may buy one to replace my rusty one.

This is the TD pipe

They'll look the same except perhaps and angle at the bottom, but I suspect the TC is of lower production and hence the cost difference. Or it's made of frikk'in moon dust.

I forgot about FTFU.

I ended up buying a new one. If you would like my old branch pipe I’ll sell it here or on eBay... but it might be a week or two before I swap it out.

Good day Mr. Andrus:

If you take the measurement of the TC pipe from opening to opening, following the curvature, the TC dresses out at 8¼" in length.
Applying the same procedure to the TD pipe the length is 9½".

The "Y" branch seems to be the same for either pipe.
