    There was a guy selling stainless boxes at Stoneleigh that interested me, as the baffles have gone in my (Cabrio) system. He was selling oval SS boxes for ?35 (+?10 p & p), and he offered to fit any size pipe to the inlet/outlet if I called him. He's Glynn Jones, at 0113 284 2084 (W. Yorks)

    Sorry Sue, I never meant to shout, that I only do after a few shandies, lagers, ciders .... or any other alcoholic beverage........and I will be joining once I can get this thing of mine back on the road again.Back to the exhaust, my 1300 marina engines roadster seems to be running hot, could it be due to the cherrybomb exhaust causing too much back pressure etc. And what type of exhausts have other members fitted to their 1300 marina roadsters. Any helpful hints appreciated!...About the exhaust....not my drinking habits...please!

    We arrived late at Stoneleigh, so didn't get to the MOC area (we'd driven down from Berwick-on-Tweed that morning in the BBS). Hope to make it to the next meet, but the Marlin is still suffering erratic and catastrophic electrical short circuits, so dont trust it far. By the way, we have some of the best real ale pubs in the country round here; as a Morris Dancer, I've tried most of them. Back to the thread, the Exhaust man I quoted is in Pool in Wharfedale, near Leeds, W. Yorkshire

    Keith,
    With ref to your engine getting hot, it will be doutfull this is due to the exhaust on a 1300 engine. It will be due to the engine fan is to far from the radiator. Try fitting a electric fan in front of the radiator or getting the rad moded to 3 core. I have heard that someone used that "WET WATER"?? coolant that Halfords sell reduces engine temp by as mush as 20%. As you live in the Great northern town of strong beer drinking Carlisle I have a spare 2 core rad if you want to test. Ask Lee to give me a ring.
    cheers.........Bob

    I agree with all of Bob's entry,can't see that the exhaust backpressure would cause that amount of overheating.My 1275 initaally used to run hot/overheat, then found that the viva rad was only single core pattern job.Replaced it with 2 core and fitted electric fan - no further problems, in fact sat in 1 hour of traffic trying to get into Stoneleigh one year with engine running continually,not so the several 7 replica's behind!!
