Inlet manifold removal

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I’m struggling to get the inlet manifold off my series 2a petrol engine. I need to take it off to drill and tap the blanked off brake vacuum as I’m nearly finished with my front disc brake conversion. I’ve removed the 2 nuts at the top, the 2 bolts underneath that go through the inlet manifold and the 2 bolts that have the wedge things on to hold the inlet and exhaust manifold on. I’ve also undone the 4 nuts on the studs that go through to the exhaust manifold (below where the carb sits). Is that all of the bolts as the inlet manifold will not move? I do not want to go near the exhaust manifold nuts / bolts as I know they will shear off………

Cheers

Chris

The inlet and exhaust manifolds on a series are usually a very tight fit together. If you can't get it off by itself, you may have to take the exhaust manifold off with it.
