    That is excellent news!

    Any chance of some pics? I would also like to know how it keeps up since there is still the concern of the metal corroding much faster. Keep us posted if you will

    Thanks,

    PS I found an article that voices concern about wrapping: Exhaust Header Heat Wraps - Do Not Use

    yea but!
    those headers are custom made out of maybe 1.5mm pipe,, a stiff breeze would hurt them,,,
    I doubt any wrap will damage a cast iron product,,

    I had a couple of the rivnuts tear out of the heat shields. I bought some brass nuts and bolts to replace them.

    Years ago, manifold nuts were always brass.

    Well finally got it to make a noise today
    Had an eye op 3 weeks ago so still only got about 50% vision in that eye, so its been painfully slow putting it back together by feel. Son inlaw come down today to help finish it off.
    May still have a bit of air in the system but the old girl started after turning over 3 or 4 times on the jump leads. Do an oil change tomorrow and hopefully back on the road.
    cheers

    ps
    once again thanks to roverlord off road spare, no doubt we will do business again
