Traced my exhaust blow today, four branch manifold is broken. Took the exhaust off today and will leave the joys of manifold removal for next week end.

Well after a fun Sunday morning with awkward stubborn nuts we removed the four branch. Then today we stuck it back together with a bit of reinforcement. All seems to line up but I'll find out next weekend.

I will post more photo's of the early jobs. Jan didn't like the colour so that was an early casualty.

Nice to see the SD1 in the background. I had one of those around that time (and was also just starting my JH ownership with a rather less intact example)

Hi Marc

The JH wasn't as complete as it looks.

The SD1 was a friends but we also had a 2600 one that was our leave anywhere car for a few years.

In the late nineties before I rebuilt the engine we were at a Jensen 541 day at Kemble airfield Gloucestershire ( I think) and a man came over to our stand. He had just flown in from Birmingham in a light plane and recognised the cars as he flew over. He asked if anyone wanted to buy a JH engine £250 as he had one in the way. I said I may be interested and asked where the engine was. Northolt by the airport was the answer which is about three miles from my house so I said I was interested. His reply was you will have to take the whole car but I can deliver it.
