Owners of the Dolomite 1500 model will be acutely aware of the problem with the exhaust manifold to downpipe gasket blowing at frequent intervals. Spitfire 1500 owners have the option of curing this permanently by using an all in one downpipe/extractor manifold which doesn't have that joint. Unfortunately Spitfire manifolds won't fit the Dolomite and so the only option is to make do with the original set up, albeit making sure that the mating faces of the manifold and downpipe are filed perfectly flat, nuts and bolts used instead of studs/nuts, chewing gum, or bits of string are used to hold the two assemblies together. The added bonus with extractor manifolds is that they do release a bit more BHP, especially when used with a less restrictive exhaust.

Four branch manifolds for OHV RWD models (1300/1500) are now available to order. RWD in stainless steel £358.20 inc shipping to mainland UK addresses (for mild steel please enquire). FWD in stainless £POA, FWD in mild steel £POA. Order from TDC Spares - details in our Club magazine or in the Members Only section of this Forum. For non-member enquires please email info@triumphdolomiteclub.com .
