Ken, Your primary copy of this e-mail was returned to me because of bad
address?? You'll see it on the list, but what's wrong?
I have a loose 3B water outlet manifold, 034 121 193A, that is destined to
go into my 7A upgraded to 3B externals project, that I could loan to you for
a short time to use as a pattern. Adapting the 7A head to accept it would
require boring the additional 3 20mm water passage holes and their
respective single tapped mounting holes for each. The additional water
passage holes are O-ring sealed with the O-ring positioned on the mating
manifold projections fitting into the head bores, so will only require a
straight thru bore. This water manifold would interfer with the 7A intake
manifold, why it is not used thereon.
