Hi tall tim, peter at ph marine is the font of all knowledge when it comes to the BMW engines. He seems to be able to get most spares. I also had a leak from the raw water section on my BMW B220 which upon removal was 2 corroded core plugs! peter is sending me some and they where £3-4 each, alot less than a new manifold. this is a link to his website http://www.phmarine.co.uk/

£1800 plus shipping and vat from Norway

If i cant weld or braize it, could I lag the manifold in fibreglass bandage etc and connect the coolant hose straight to the riser from the heat exchanger?
