I‘m being sarcastic here, because it isn’t. Everytime I order parts there is always something wrong. Well, in nine out of ten cases.
I bought two exhaust manifolds from an eBay seller in England, listed as E-Type Series 2 manifolds. Never buy something from a Brit, I‘ve said before. I‘m allowed to say that as I‘m one myself.
Now I‘ve ordered all screws and gaskets etc, and just as I wanted to declare my E-Type weekend open, I realize that the gasket rings don‘t fit. They are either too large or the hole in the manifold is too small, which means two things. The manifolds listed on eBay are not from an E-Type, or that company in England with the three letters has sent me the wrong rings. What do you think? The hole in the manifold is 4,8cm diametre, which is about 1-7/8“.
I should go back to plastic modelling
