The water cooled exhaust manifold

The last time it came off (overheating cure) I reused the gaskets with a little thinned gum gum. Grrrr. Mistake’s, I’ve made a few, but there again, too few to mention. It had a drip all last summer so pain had to be endured.

Now to clean out the bolt holes, associated bolts and the mating faces ready to refit. It’s a pig of a job to get at, the design is not exactly user friendly. I think I’ll pull the engine side access panels while it’s off and put in new gaskets. A little oil is seeping out from somewhere and these are my best guess.
