Hi,
Anyone got an ignition switch with key?
Also need the 2 gaskets for manifolds to exhaust.
Thanks,
Jim.

Jim, you can get exhaust manifold gaskets from any motor factors, they're a standard size.

Thanks for the reply Melle. Just to be perfectly clear I'm looking for the gasket between the exhaust and the manifold not the one between the manifold and the head.

I can't find the Bosal number, but the stud spacing is 67mm and the port diameter is 40mm. The motor factors I use have a Bosal wall chart where they can find the right ones with this information. They are about 2 apiece and identical to the V6 exhaust gaskets, so Burtons etc. will probably also stock them if you can't get any locally. I bet you know a local specialist though who can sort you a pair through his trade channels. ;)

Yes, I have a few as well but they're in NL and I won't be there before December; I guess Jim needs them sooner.

Jim, the copper exhaust gaskets work a treat, but you need to make sure the manifolds and flanges are clean and dead flat and the copper is deburred, or they'll leak.

I sent it by clicking the "Email Poster" button. Apparently that does not work, or maybe there's an old email address under that button.

Anyway... I've sent you an email asking for an address to send the gaskets to. Meanwhile I received your response, the gaskets will go in the mail tomorrow.

(BTW we also have copper head gaskets.)
