Maybe a bit of learning here for those who may be interested.Great stuff Scott, takes me back to my first car, a Wolseley 15/60 (4 cylinder)which morphed into a 24/80 (6 cylinder) with an engine swap.
The numbers: 15/60 = 1500cc/60hp. 24/80 = 2.4L and 80hp. (all values roughly speaking)
There was also a 16/60 if I remember.
The Wolseley was the luxury version of the Austin.
Cobba, that is a new hose in the picture.Good stuff Scotty, it is very clean once you get the free-loaders out of the Freeway. Your hose may not be such a tricky bugga to get. Im thinking Mini or similar had something like that. If not a bit of exhaust tube and braze in the small tube and use some short pieces of hose for the reat.
Engine bay now the nests are gone. It needs a clean yet.
