I recently got these parts in a job lot and I'm just wondering if anyone can shed some light on them.

 

Firstly the steering wheel is 12" 2 spoke with a leather rim

I have tried searching online for this manifold and possibly Downton? can anyone confirm this?

The second manifold I have not seen before

Any help with Identifying these parts would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

If I’m not mistaken that’s a boat steering wheel! Stick an outboard on the car and see how well she floats!
The first inlet is without a doubt a downton. The second I’m not so sure about but it looks strikingly similar to an MGBGT manifold. Could be an early MOSS made for the HS2/4. Not entirely sure!

Think I once had the second manifold, are they traces of bright orange paint I can see on it? Mine was matt bright orange with tapered threaded plugs in either end, was sold it as a mangoletsi manifold, it had no markings and appeared quite a poor casting on my one.
Is the first manifold not one of the various standard bmc ones?

The steering wheel is from a Clan Crusader [which was a lovely handling sports car and not a boat at all ;-) ]

 

I don't remember them being available as an aftermarket wheel too, nor who made them

I knew i'd seen that style of steering wheel somewhere.

If there was a weekly prize for spotting rare parts you'd win hands down :techsupport:

 

12A661 P2 manifold is a std 1960's 998 twin carb Cooper manifold.

Not sure about any Downton link (they did collaborate with Morris Engines on the Cooper S). Doesn't it have MOWOG cast on the bottom, the earlier P1 did.

Back at ya! :highfive:

 

I've wanted a Clan for many years and recently wanted one more and more.  But now I've spent a couple of hours reading your link to that retro-rides thread and cured myself!!  :huh:  I hadn't realised that running one could involve re-glassing over rotted plywood!

I wonder how the [obviously very talented] guy who wrote that thread ended up? The thread ran from 2012 to 2015 by which time he seemed to have lost interest :(

 

I'll have to keep the bleedin' Mini!!

 

 



Thats great, Thanks guys!

 

You're welcome!
