Cars annoy me on occasions.
I went to investigate a noisy exhaust issue on the Mitsubishi and poking all the joints revealed nothing so I started taking bits off to check them and hiding behind a heatshield I found a crack in a cast iron manifold.
A bit of googling later and it turns out welding cast iron is harder than breeding Unicorns, a chap with 30+ years as a welder struggles to do it as cast iron varies immensely in its composition and usually cracks somewhere else as the weld cools.
Well beyond the skills and capability of me armed with a cheap Aldi Arc welder then
Ok, lets try and get a price for an authentic part - £370 + vat - I think not, time to cast the net wider
Intapart - No answer, probably the best result after last time

:rolleyes: two days pass…
Then I get a call, much better price, I’m about to buy a perfectly good 24V-V6 shogun and swap the bits at this point so the offer is snatched up, paid up and item is in the post. :mexwave:
Twenty minutes later I get a second quote for half the price
PS: DT fix the tumbleweed smiley, or did I imagine there was one in here ?
