The next task was to modify the top radiator hose. Any keen reader/watcher may have noticed how close the top hose was to the aftermarket manifold. I did use some heat wrap to help prevent the hose burning through but I wanted something permanent.

Justin to the rescue again and he found me a piece of 25mm stainless tube with a 90 degree elbow. With it cut to size and a contractor at his work putting an average bead of weld around the ends, it was ready to be fitted

Sadly I don't have a before photo to hand, but the heat wrap was against the manifold branch

I still need to source a smaller P clip with a long enough bracket so it reaches the radiator, but for now it's supporting it enough
