Chrome side pipes and flames next right?  sctatcherhead

Side pipe it's only an I4.

Lucas electrics make sure there are plenty of flames.

Well informal poll of daughters. They all like the banjo better.
Tool do job = Good tool
Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. Robert A. Heinlein

My TR is getting duals and it is an I6....why not for an I4? Bet it would sound great!!

....and I agree with Lucas flames. :-)

That is funny.

Please thank the daughters for their input.

Brophy it has a header I assume the original manifold cracked - they were known to do so. Since I fixed the exhaust leaks it sounds pretty good - similar note to a stock TR6. Might be because the muffler had a large hole so maybe the baffles inside are gone. The tailpipes on this one face up a little so water runs right into the muffler.

I drove it earlier for the first time earlier tonight and I like the new wheel a lot better. I thought I had the wheels dead straight but I guess not the spokes are about 45* off so I have to readjust.
