October 1975 TC .
I am just changing the side covers on the block & have taken off the exhaust manifold & its a bit of a bodge, massive amount of weld and perforated. I had another used spare and find the there is a difference where they join the exhaust pipe . The outlet on one has a sort of Y adaptor and the other pipes have been formed to blend straight into the flange .
The original is the Y adaptor type ( with all the weld) . Anyone know if both are original & if so when did they change? Thanks Derek

My series 1 came originally with the manifold on the right, so probably this is the early design.
This was very tired, so sometime in the past i have swapped it for the type on the left, however, i have no idea from what car it came from.

Thanks all, that was my thoughts but I didn't want to prejudice the replies . I might have a go at repairing the LH one if the flange will stand it. As anyone got a flange going spare, presumably a front pipe will have the same size one.?

The TC manifolds crack & rot out at a great rate. I'd be surprised if any TC had it's original manifold unless it got parked just a few years after it was new.

Vern, if you could see the amount of bodge welding that manifold had, you could as well suppose that it was original.
