i have two standard performance exhausts for the 2.0 Pinto engines one a bit battered from a pranged F2 BRISCA car and a new 4-1 manifold for a standard car which i am tempted to cannibalise.....

Hello Dave and Daryl,
the construction of my first exhaust manifold, I've learned a lot about the decline of steel.
-------> The shrinkage is greater than the heating. <------ Very important!

Adjust the bends in the car and then welding point. (always opposite)

then the exhaust manifold on a suitable steel plate (30mm thick) mount. Can be welded on all sides.

Before dismantling, heat the manifold completely red hot.
The tensions go out.

The exhaust manifold which I have built is no built in power. Since my very little space was available. But aseverything fits under the hood. ;-)

learning by doing.......

I like the exhaust manifold Tom......send me one for my car.. ;-)

back from the workshop....

Made new exhaust manifold (welded) and painted.




For the water hose to cold-start automatic two new holders built and polished.


Hello Dave, i hope to see you sense next year :-)))

What a bummer. Now I've written so much and images used .... and the text has not been transmitted completely ....grrrrrrrrrrrr

So much honor ..... I'm still red

and now I am struggling with the Google translator and my modest knowledge of English to ..... I hope to be understood to some sense and respond properly .... after 14 houres Dutton working in my Workshop.

cheers ... on my right side the first beer to night/morning and to the left the cigarett...

The Malaga is running again





.... but.....

Today I had to learn again .... Man does not always think of everything .... after I was of the opinion that everything is put together. I start the engine ... and what shall I say to you .... I forgot to mount the oil cooler. What a mess .... One liter of oil on the floor .... shit happens...  too long once worked .... ;-)

But now to business

After four hours measure with spirit level and profile tubes for the future third Dutton.
Setting the rear axle and measure the front axle. I hope that the car will be normal again on the road traveling.

As you can see, the front wheels after 2500 miles

My car is well out and i am aiming for 5-8 degrees castor and 1 degree for camber (all -ve) my back axle is within 0.25 degrees from true so is likely about spot on. i would like to build in anti dive geometry into my front end but it is tiresome to do all the sums when i also want it all adjustable.
Comment by Dave Adams on November 25, 2011 at 13:08
He has spaced the bottom on the o/s and the top on the n/s. because the early chassis was often very poorly aligned. so by doing that he hopes to correct the castor, camber and track of the car.

An article about toms S1 and possibly his wifes Malaga B+ is on the cards for the next issue of dutton torque.....
