Exhaust

Postby Vauxste » Sun Sep 01, 2019 1:47 pm

Hi guys

Need your help. Still in process of restoring 1970 HB. Can you still obtain the olive that goes between exhaust downpipe and exhaust manifold. If not are there any fixes you can do to make a gas tight fit between these parts. The engine is the 1159cc one. Have got a HC one but as you all know it's too big. Also need a brake master cylinder,if anyone can supply part No and point me in right direction would be very grateful.

Many Thanks

Steve Douglas.

I have some original Vauxhall cast iron olives here. I'm not sure if they are specifically HB but if you give me the dimensions I can check.

Thanks for that. Just measured and internal diameter is 3.5cms and external diameter is 5cms. Thinking out of the box had an idea of using woodfire fire box sealing rope. Might be a last resort if I cannot source one.Never heard of it used before but unless someone comes and says no might give it a try.

Brake master cylinder, depends whether it's drum brake or disc front, the disc brake m, cylinder isn't readily available & tends to be on the pricey side, the drum brake m, cylinder is available brand new, marketed as a clutch master cylinder for the old style land rover & is only about a tenner on e-bay, got one on my estate for the last couple of years
