A bit more "pep"

More spannering - here's the scene from about 5.30 tonight.

I have now shown the blowing exhaust manifold/downpipe gasket who is boss.

Took some time for such a little job but it is now sorted with the aid of borrowed exhaust jointing paste - thanks Jon

Then it was onto the carb front. Having removed the carb I swapped over the spindles and butterfly so that the "modded one" is now in the carb. On the left here is the standard installation and on the right is the modified one - I think the difference can be seen here. Basically it should flow more air and hence improve performance.

It was then refitted along with the air filter including stub stack.

Initial feeling is that the car is certainly livelier
