Manifold end of exaughst

Post by elfin girl on Fri Jun 23, 2017 7:50 pm

Oops, sorry not been here for a while, I seem to have turned into one of those that only returns when they have a problem. Been pushing my arthritic joints to the limit trying to build the rest of the chicken enclosure. Then had technical issues for a bit and had to reset iPad, which, annoyingly wiped all my log in names and passwords, anyway, iv managed to sort that so back again.

My little weenybago has sprung an exausght leak on the manifold end now! I've not had chance to get underneath to see exactly where from but wondered if anybody has the part in good nic or know of where I could source it?

In other news I've also bought some cheep tacky plastic Windows to put in the side, I'm driving to Wales next month and don't want to pay the double toll fee just because it has no back windows! Fook knows how I'm going to cut the holes though!

Manifold leak is rare? Nibbler or jigsaw with metal blade?

Why have you built a chicken enclosure in the back? For interesting company on the journey or for self sufficiency in anticipation of the exhaust breaking and you having a longer stay than planned?? Rolling Eyes

I did think it was unusual, not had chance to get underneath but hoping that the guy who did the other bit in Jan either didn't connect it very well or maybe not sealed with new gaskets?

Yeah, see I used to be able just about hold a jigsaw going through metal, these days it would definately be worth videoing for you've been framed, pretty sure it would take me off my feet Laughing I don't have a nibbler, not sure it's worth getting one just for that, I'll get some blades for the jig saw and see if I can convince someone else to do it !

Haha, well, it is being built in the back garden, however the thought had crossed my mind to build a cage or something on the back to take them camping with me

Make sure you get blades designed for thin metal. Probably jumping about before because too course teeth on blades so they grabbing all the time rather than cutting. I've use a jigsaw on thin metal when doing mine and it was fine.

Sooooo, why oh why would I belive a mechanical when he tells me "it's leaking from the manifold"??!!!!
I have hopefully found a reliable mechanic now in the next town from me, he took the time to put it up on a ramp and have a look, and nope, manifold fine, but a bit of the previous fixes I had done on the catalytic converter had come lose so a bit of exhaust paste fixed it for now,
but it guess that leaves me with a search for a cat Neutral Which I'm double guessing won't be cheap Shocked
Oh well, been looking at nibblers too, I know nothing about this tool, would one of those cheep ones that attaches to a drill do the job? Found one dirt cheep, selling for £10 less that others selling the same make so wondering wether to just give it a go

i have put a second hand charade 1.3 cat on my hijet that we had laying around
and it past the mot with it just fine.
no need to spend money on a new one or get a hijet cat.. you just need to know someone who can weld it for you.

Jigsaw would do the job, just get the correct blade for thin metal, be far cheaper.

Ah, right ok, I'm pretty sure this new guy I found can weld, so if it needs to be done I can just ask to him to fit any ole cat that fits in the gap?!

in theory i think yes.
i choose a charade one because we had one laying around and its almost the same engine.

He supplied mine but probably as I got a full system but probably sourced that from elsewhere and yes my memory grey cells failed Woodie! Wink
