    I pulled the manifolds off the 4K this morning and found they are leaking between the exhaust ports. (surprise surprise.. piece of shit design!)

    Anyway, the only manifold gasket from ACL is a two-piece one, just like the leaky pair that came off. Repco & Supercheap & Auto-one & Autobarn all seem to stock ACL gaskets now.

    The one-piece ones exist, they come with the full headset for over $100 !

    Does anyone know where I can buy a one-piece gasket by itself?

    $10 from Mid-Western Spares here in Orange. They had to get it in.

    Changing the oil filter solved the start-up bearing rattle. The filter we bought it with did not have a non-return valve in and emptied itself overnight, leading to 20seconds of bottom end bearing rattle every morning.

    Changing the gasket has 90% cured the chuff in the morning, I can just hear it. Seeing we've only cold-started the car once I'll run if for a day or two and see if its worth popping the gasket off and using some sealer around it. I put it on dry and clean.
