LCB Manifold

Post  hornetob on Fri May 07, 2010 2:48 pm

HI,

I revently bought an LCB from Minispares which is fouling my C.V. joints.

I have the later type A plus engine with Pot joints.

Has anyone had similar problems and managed to overcome them without resorting to using heat on the downpipes?

The manifold was only a cheap one so this could easily be the problem!

They can be a tight fit, but with a little moving and shaking you should be able to make it clear. However, most recommend going for the Maniflow cooper freeflow manifold, smaller bore, but without some of the other issues.

My son in law has just bought one from Maniflow. Said it was the easiest to fit and best he's ever had of all of those he's had (and he's had quite afew!)

cheers for that, might try a specialist components stainless steel one as they look to be good quality and a bit cheaper than maniflow!

The other benefit is that they dont have a seperate Y piece to split. I have not tried any other make so I cannot really comment - I do know that when fitting the freeflow one the advice I got was to attach the mnanifold prior to putting in the engine to save hitting the subframe.

I usualy install the engine without head. The LCB can be put in place before the rear head studs are fixed. The whole thing is much easier without the head.
