Update on my Caterpillar Recast Manifolds, the same spec as New with the correct depth and profile on the inner casting and jacket etc, I recon if you are going to make tooling for a new one, then you might as well go all the way and make it genuine to the manufactures spec and detail.
I am looking to cast a couple of extra ones to help my tooling up costs, there are going to be 2 different castings when finished, the one for the Gas 35/40 and the larger one for the R5.
I have already sold a couple, anyone interested can email me or pm me.
This is a 100 % copy of the Cat Inlet Manifold
I am looking to Cast them in 2 Weeks
I am attaching a couple of photos to show the Extent of the tooling up 200 hours of labour for a pattern maker was a rought estimate.
Restoring a Cat is one thing, But actully making the Parts is a Project on its own
