Phew, I'm glad that you could come in with a true example of what I was trying to say Mk1! A single casting with a casting number used in two different applications - with two different stamped-in numbers. Nope, I don't really understand it either. Casting economics I suppose

Great read! Many thanks.
This time I just have to pick up my device and start playing. One of the main tombola bingo app features is that it was made by experts. Don't you think?

I have a 1275 S that was built in April of 1965. Which manifold would be correct, the AEG 179 or AEG 347?

AEG 179 was only used on early production date Cooper S's.

Your car would have had a 347 as per the list on the previous page.

Thanks for your reply. What date is the cutoff between "early" and "late"?

Mid to late 1964 about the same time as Hydro came in.
