Thanks for the tip for 301garage.  TTA Performance has some repaired manifolds which I think I will order this week along with some other minor parts.  But I will keep searching for original manifolds.  Take care.

Hi All

Just wanted to let you know that I replaced the ICM (AC Delco, GM) and the car started.

Ran it for an hour in the driveway. temp did go to 220. when I took it around the block it went 215.

I am so happy. now need to tune it up abit as it is running high 1500 to 1300 rpm's

Thanks all for your help

Suggestions / Re: Canalside cruise?

Had a look at that route...it looks interesting.
 It might be fun to, instead of Port Colborne, get on the Niagara Pkwy st Fort Erie and do the whole run to NOTL.
I'm told the Ridge Road along the escarpment is a good run also.
Whenever I get my heads back, and get back on the road, we could do a test run.

Thanks guys for the quick response.  I probably washed the engine when it was hot in my younger days....

I have emailed pictures of the cracked manifolds to TTA Performance to see if they can weld them.  I do know a couple of welding shops that could possibly do it here in Ontario but they are asking what is the material composition of the manifold so they can figure out a proper welding procedure. I will do some research on the material.

I will keep in mind that Wheelman has the exhaust pipes and cat.

Thanks Jeff for the NAPA offer.  I doubt they will have the passenger side manifold but they might have the drivers side because it is more common. I will look into it.

I have a complete 1980 motor with manifolds that are in good condition.  But I want to try to find 81s to keep my car as original as possible.  I remember reading somewhere that manifolds were apparently redesigned in 81 and are different than the 80.

If NAPA can source you one, I can get a discount.
