Triumph TR6 - Exhaust Manifold
|I have a 1976 TR6. Are exhaust manifolds exchangable with another year TR6 manifold. I need a manifole and there is a 1974 manifold availiable to purchase.I understand that there are one pipe systems and two pipe systems and that must be compatable.|
If you still have the air injection stuff for pollution or ever had you need a 75 or 76. If you do have the pump now may be the ideal time to get rid of it?
If you don't anything past a 72 will bolt up. Can't think of any problems.
|Thanks Bill, The air injection tubes rusted out, so i removed them and the pump etc. I took the manifold to the machine shop to plug the holes, and drill out the one tube that broke in the manifold. It came back and really looks a mess. I found a 74 manifold that i can buy and bolt up without looking that things have been modified. Wish I knew, the manifold that was worked on really looks a mess. I want things to look good under the hood.|
|Just watch when you torque down and hook up pipes. Castings are what is called green new a little more pliant and then from heating and cooling or time age. |
That doesn't harm them actually makes better but they tend to form and harden. So stay a bit light on the torque till you heat up a bit through running. Then retorque. Should be good.
|I have a used manifold that has the air injection tubes cut off. The problem, I can't get the bolts for the injection tubes out. I've tried penetrant and torch heat. I managed to break one of the bolts off in the manifold. |
I'll have to drill out and re-tap the stuck bolts and plug them if I want to use it. In the end, it will look like crap so I think I'll get a nice used one. I've seen them go fairly cheap on Ebay before.

|I have a '75 exhaust manifold sitting around, and would be happy to sell it.|
Email me if interested.
|Replacing it with a good used manifold is the way to go. I have learned by experience.|
