I have collected today my 1st off sample of the Inlet Manifold for a Cat Gas 40, I have invested many $1000's of Dollars into this project, to reproduce the same spec of casting including detail into this Cat Item , I have spent more dollars than I even payed for the whole machine.
I would like to thank those Cat Guys who have actually sent me Payment along the way, to secure a Machined up Reproduction of the Inlet Manifold, as a Good Will Jesture for those who have sent Payment, I am going to Supply the Inlet Manifold with Stainless 316 Studs, Stainless 316 Spring Washers, and Long Style Brass Exhaust Nuts Thanks for your Support
Due to the Cost of Pattern Setting and Core Moulding Time, This is a One Time Deal I am going to modify some of the core box tooling to make the Cat 30 Inlet and use the same core boxes for the HeatBox on 15/20/30/35/40/R5.
If anyone would like a Cat 35/40/R5 Inlet Manifold, Please let me know by email or PM as a Matter of Urgency I am only taking orders over the next 5 days.
