Pull my Carb. off to replace the heat shield and decided to take of the intake and exhaust manifold to replace the rusted bolt bolts on the manifold for new exhaust coming in a couple days....Then WOOOOOW!!!! A 3 inch crack in the center exhaust ports, right in the top, was blowing exhaust out onto the Carb. I have a complete exhaust system on its way and no manifold to put it on.

Can I have it welded or Does anyone have an exhaust manifold to get rid off (that is not cracked). There is one on Ebay right now. But I would like to help out a fellow Opeler, if someone on this site has one.

Thanks,
Stanley_P

You need one that has to bolt to the intake right? I can check tomorrow, but, I think I might have one.

Gene,

Yes, but I'll take an intake and exhaust if they are attached.

Thanks,
Stanley

I know I have one that is already attached to an intake. The only problem is that I'm at school and wouldn't be able to get it to you until november. If you have no luck let me know

Stanley ...

Why do need an intake manifold ... couldn't you just bolt the new exhaust manifold to your intake manifold? I have intake and exhaust manifolds ... but not sure if I have an "attached" set -- I'll check my stash. Anyway, if I do have what you need I'll ship it to you for shipping cost ... OR ... you could pick it up at Mid Ohio on or before Friday. I'm helping Stan at the Run Offs at Mid Ohio this week (I'll be there this afternoon through Friday). If Mid Ohio isn't too far a drive, I'll bring the manifold with me and you could pick it up there -- plus, you get to see Stan's GT in action. The GTLite race is 1425hrs (2:25PM) Friday.

Ken,

I was just assuming most folks cannot get the 2 unattached. I would take an exhaust manifold or an exhaust/intake. I can get mine apart and install the exhaust manifold but if anyone has one that they cannot get apart I'll take it.
Let me know if you have either, I'll gladly pay the shipping cost.

I would love to see Stan run in his Opel, but work and 2 teenage kids (17, 18) at home its hard for me to leave them alone during the week (if you know what I mean). They think my house is Hotel Opel.....when I'm away...


Thanks,
Stanley_P

If you look in the thread about the sprint there is an unattached one that has no home but a scrap yard. It faces the wrong way for me and the little buggers multiply like rabbits here. Need bolts too?

Checked all my manifolds, they'll need work to be useable, try with someone else.
Sorry,
