Default 242 Exhaust Manifold/Header

I'm curious what exhaust header/manifold you are running. I've got a '75 242 DL, and the manifold recently cracked. I've been having trouble finding a replacement for the B20f. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Its just a cheap patriot header. Find it on summit racing. they have a couple options. You will need to attach it to the rest of the exhaust system, but its not hard.

Long story short,

Some lady not paying attention, hit my car on he way to work a few ago.


After a week of body shop issues... I finally found and move the car to a great shop near my house who specializes in classic cars.

Here is the physical damage.









Why cant people just drive. It's not really that hard to stay focused on the road.


Also,

Another update...

I am getting a new B20 engine built for the car.

Going with the B21 pistons. should be around high 8 cr. Great for the supercharger.

I might want to get a bigger charger now...

ouch on the dent, after putting so much TLC into that. her insurance is probably going to try some chit like, "1975 Volvo == $1200 in perfect shape, scrap it!" and you'll need to fight them tooth and nail to get anything reasonable.

Thanks, by any chance do you know if you ordered the H4851, or the H4850?

They look nearly identical to me, but the H4851 has a tiny note saying that it fits '75 fuel-injected only.

If your 75 has the Kjet fuel injection then yes. Get the injection one.

If your car has a carb then I believe you need the other one. It doesn't have the little tabs for the thicker intake manifold.

The insurance claim is not settled yet as I am waiting for a few invoices for parts to come in from my friend I bought parts from, but I picked the car up Tuesday, and it sat in the driveway ever since.


When I picked it up










I finally got to look at the car under normal lighting and not being rushed back to work.


This is fender work.


The metal work is pretty awesome. The color matching is pretty spot on.





The only issue is this... They painted over very small, never noticeable lines in the paint before it was hit with out prepping it.





I was not notified of the potential issue that area would have, and it was not part of the accident repair cost.


The lines are extremely noticeable. Its rather unfortunate.
