Hi All any news when these will actually be available for delivery - as I was thinking of putting it on the rebuilt engine and keeping old manifold on as a spare :lol:

Again big thumbs up to all concerned.

Seeing how I am the slowest renovator ever (hernia and children, and a wife that rides horses is a recipe for never finishing) I am hoping this arrives by the time I turn 95 and actually need to put this part on the car!:)

They're done!

For the first 35 names, the procedure I'd like you to follow to place an order is as follows:

Please email your name and address to Neil Lovelock @ Lotus - [email protected] (he has a copy of the list and will check you off as you order) and inform him you'd like to purchase a manifold via Stratton Motor Company. You manifold will then be delivered to Strattons (closest dealer to the factory) and then they will call you to take payment and arrange delivery. Strattons have agreed to ship worldwide so they are handling all orders as I have arranged.

Copy and paste this email to Neil.

Dear Neil

Thanks for all your help, we think you're the best! Please book out 1 manifold (A910E2155K) to me, my name and address is:

Name

Address

Phone Number

I'd like it to be delivered to Stratton Motor Company who will process my order for me.

Thanks again, merry christmas.

Yours

Name

Please post below when you're done so I can cross you off the list here too :thumbup:

If you are referring to cracked manifolds, then sorta.

All manifolds can crack. The early manifolds for cars with integrated wastegates have the most tendency to crack. Over the years, Lotus has modified these manifolds to increase the amount of material between ports to reduce the problem of cracking. I would venture to guess that most of the cracks are caused by vibrations introduced when one or more of the exhaust manifold studs falls out of the #4 port. This can also lead to cracks in the early cars with external wastegates.

I read that water splashed from the tires onto a hot manifold will cause cracking. Is that a possibility on the cars?

Email sent..as a bit of an assist to others further down the list who may be in desperate need of a new manifold...as I'm unlikely to need to change it for quite a bit (unless I fry the engine AGAIN in a fit of Toadish enthusiasm) I'd be happy for someone else to have my manifold and slide further down the list. Let me know if it would help any of you....

Dull person!! Just read where Bibs says there are a few spares...but the offer stays open if anyone needs it.
