    Unhappy manifold snapped

    I have a 5.7 V8 small block chevy engine in my Pilgrim Sumo, and today found that the right manifold branch has snapped completely through mainly due to rust etc.
    Can anyone recommend where to purchase a new manifold from preferably from this country.
    Did have a car show to go to next weekend but not looking to promising now

    As above.
    Are your sidepipes held on with 2 bolts/brackets each side? If so, make sure you remove the front mounting point, so that the engine can move on start-up.
    Also, you might want to look at renewing the engine mounts to stiffer ones if there is a lot of movement when turning the starter- easy job with a jack. Pilgrim upgraded these at some point.
