  • Franks exhaust manifold

    Many of you have these , i fitted both mine a good few years back .
    So fitting .
    Fairly easy as it happens , i found the head studs lined up fairly well and it fitted OK .
    Manifold outlet pipe did need bending down a tad and it also sits a lot higher than say a Janspeed did , This means there is a limit to the silencer length otherwise it will hit the rear panel . Max silencer length is 14 inch and even then only if you cut a bit off the manifold. A 12 inch box is the ideal and no more than 4 inch in diameter , you can of course fit an oval box .
    I had to make the exhaust hanger and clamp on both of mine , also rubber mounted it as . anti vibration
    ALWAYS adjust the hanger to match the exhaust bracket your fitting - in other words dont try and bend the exhaust up or down to fit the bracket , that causes major stress to the bracket , box and manifold - not a good thing.
    I fitted 90˚ bends as tailpipes on mine but straight will fit OK

    You can see how high the box sits - hence the box length restriction

    A message from Frank on the second (or is it third) generation manifolds

    Frank Wrote : Thank you Dave Lane. Yours were early type they have since been slightly improved...and now available highly polished. They were made high so the young brigade could lower their imps but also were made to take the offset back box which then cleared rear transom.. I currently have made and sold 175 of them and have 15 left........
