    Welding ( repair )cast manifold Flathead ford

    I've never tried this but with the help of utube thought I would give it a go. After grinding to clean the broken parts it seems a big gap needed to be filled so supported with the opposite side manifold. Stoked up the barbeque and heated it all up before MIG welding and filing the gap. While still hot I seprated the two parts and welded as best I could inside also. Apparently the thing to do is return it to the heat and just leave it all to cool down. A;; bolted back on and seems OK. Good old utube
