756 water intake manifold?


Recommended Posts

I would not weld it. Chased that problem on my 826. I don't know what they used in Germany to cast it but it has a lot of impurities in it. The heat from welding it can warp the sealing surface to the point it won't seal. 

I was finally forced to find a replacement for the 826. 

Be very careful, or I just had bad luck.

Had to find a good used one here a few months ago for a 786 after one of the mounting ears cracked & broke off.  NOS ones aren't an option here in the states anymore.

During my search online, I came across an image on the internet, showed a new, billet-machined water manifold for a German engine.  The post was from overseas, a few years old, but nonetheless, I was intrigued about it.  Looked like a heavy-duty water manifold that definitely wouldn't break or leak ever again!

Sounds like you've nothing to lose. I'll bet money it would warp somewhat but you could always have it surfaced. 

If it's just a small crack what about like a silicon bronze or aluminum bronze??? By not having to lay the heat to it you might be better off. I'm not a welder I'm asking FYI.
