Exhaust manifold

My exhaust manifold is shot

Anyone know of 1 for sale or any ideas as it is broken into too many pieces
To consider welding

Thanks folks

Bad luck, is it really beyond a good welder? Cast iron I presume…..people who are good enough to weld cast iron might fancy the challenge.

Hi Glynn

Bad news...
As it is a molded part, I don't think it can be repaired if too broken...

Did you ask Morten? On the "parts for sale" pages, there's a manifold

Bon courage!!

I think I am ok now for the main manifold, but still need the lower valve box that connects to the exhaust.
Have tried welding it but it isn't cooperating.

Thanks adam if you wouldn't mind asking.

The guys have stuff cast for the steam engine they have under restoration I'll get a contact for you at the foundry / Pattern maker...

Hi Glynn

There's a chap I'm in touch with who is an engineer (chemical as it happens) who has also turned his hand to pattern making…..more as an intellectual exercise, but its all been cast successfully on the train project in the shed, have you got some photos of the bit that needs doing and can it be glued back together? To model it. Let me have some snaps and I'll run it past him and see if he fancies a go at it..

That sounds brilliant the broken bit is the flange which could be simplified and drilled and cut to shape after
