Big bore exhaust

Having fitted an Ital 1275 motor I now want to upgrade the exhaust system.
I have a Modified Metro manifold (I have cut off the intake part) and bought a ESM big bore exhaust system.
My question is,what fittings starting from the manifold end willI require to fit this exhaust?
Many thanks,
Martin.

Many thanks for all replies. Fitting the Ital engine I had to use a Minor front plate and an ESM modified backplate and flywheel,I used the original Minor 1098 gearbox and fitted a needle roller bearing in the end of the crankshaft. Being a cheapskate I modified the fan blade by cutting it to clear ...

Hi,
A couple of questions,
What are the main differences between an Ital 1275 A+ and a 1275 MG Midget engine?
Will a 1275 Midget rear axle assy. fit a Minor 1000?
Many thanks in anticipation.
Martin.

I have a 1275 Ital engine,using a 1098 manifold with the inlet section cut of and replaced with a Minisport alloy item. My question is can I use a bigger bore downpipe and upgrade the rest of the system. Yes a LCB would be far better,but I am looking for an alternative! Thanks for bearing with me! M...

No bypass hose

Hi all,
I am looking at a 12G940 cylinder head to fit to my Ital 1275 engine.
The only thing is it has no bypass hose facility.
Is there anyway I can get round this and blank off the waterpump outlet.
Many thanks,
Martin.
