Clamping exhaust manifold to cylinder head

Postby lschiffb » Sat Jun 18, 2011 7:16 pm

I’m reassembling my 1098 MkII engine after rebuilding my cylinder head and am now ready to reattach the exhaust manifold and carburetors. There are six studs or bolts that come out from the side of the head to accommodate the manifold and carburetors. The two on each end come through corresponding holes in the manifold. The four in the middle seem to clam the manifold and carburetors to the head by way of some big heavy-duty washers, four of them by the looks of it, then two smaller ones for the end bolts. Problem is, I can’t figure out what part number this is for Moss or Victoria British. The car was beat up when I tore the head off and I only have one of each washer. Can anyone help me identity this part?

Thanks!

I'm surprised to not see those thick washer listed by Moss or VB. You might need to call them.
But, I did find them listed on the Mini Mania site.

Hey, there they are! Thanks! I'll call Moss. Might even swing by Napa and see if they have something that's close enough. Thanks again!

You might find some "fender washers" at a hardware store, which have the correct outside diameter and bolt/stud hole diameter. They will be thinner than the Sprite washer, but perhaps stacking two or three would be acceptable.

That's just what I did. I found some washers at Napa that we half the thickness, so I doubled them up. I figure that it will be easy enough to eye-ball them from time to time and make sure they're holding. Not too hard to replace if not.

Thanks!
