I welded my AW 6 exhaust manifold in situ  38 years ago and have had no issue with that. The crack on the Chev manifold is on the top front corner and I reckon if I run the engine for a little while then weld, then run the engine for a bit longer, it should be ok. Its only a tiny crack

Yeah some good nickel rods are out there just need to get my A game together and use them. Going to lay the cylinder down to make it easier and do the usual pre n post heating/cooling.
Can you tack weld your manifold while its in place to keep it straight? I had the manifold on my David Brown 30C surfaced because pr-me the repair was done which holds but kept blowing gaskets so took to the engineering shop and they sorted it.

Good luck with the frost crack, some good sorts of welding rods out there. I might have to weld in situ a small crack on my 1926 Chev truck exhaust manifold.  I guess a transport of my engine will turn up eventually !!

No as common  as the 2 n 3 hp models. Im working on my 3hp now having to ressurect it after many years of not running and now about to weld up a frost crack. I too have to do a water tank but at least I have my home made transporter.

Gentlemen, acquired this motor 35 years ago from a work mate, stored it on a mates farm for the last 33 years and only picked it up the other day. Gave the points a clean, and she started sort of first up, sticking valves. When I cranked her over the following day she started fine, guess the valves had woken up. It had been used on a cherry orchard to drive a big bore pump for irrigation. I picked up a muffler for it,  and have had a water tank made. Guessing I need to get a transport for it, so will start looking. Not sure if I will refinish her or not, do have a grist mill I can drive with it.  I gather the 6 HP models are not common.

Is there a way to find topics, or articles, on this site, that are in the older TOMM mags? I have nearly all the old magazines, and I do not want to go through all of them to find a particular topic! Reckon I would be there for days! Just thought they may have indexed them in some way!  Regards, Phil.
