MK2 GT lhd exhaust manifold question

Recommended Posts

I am starting to go through my bits to sort out the engine. My gt did come with a box of odd bits which included the exhaust manifold. I am a bit puzzled as it has the remains of what looks like a heat shield welded to it,did Ford do this to the LHD GT/E's  so the steering box and clutch/brake parts did not get to hot? It does not look like a home addition to me but I could be wrong.:unsure:

none of my lhd cars has this heat shield, and there is actually plenty of room between the sterring box,brake etc.  maybe it´s from a MK2 Escort, they had some sort of "airduct" for warming the intake air? just a thought MIke, maybe you can show us a pic of your manifold?

here we go, I think it is to far down the manifold to be an old air duct good idea though.

Unless it was something to do with the smog equipment  when it was new?.
