Hello Everyone,
Upon removing my exhaust manifold (1500 midget), I found it broken 
in one place and cracked in 3 others!  If anyone has some experience 
to share with header applications on the '77 1500 midget, I'm all 
ears. In addition to that, I have noticed that most of the 
suspension bushings appear rotted, and I wish I had bought that 
complete kit Vicky B's had on sale!  Is there a better place to buy 
that sort of thing?


My original message follows (I'm not convinced it posted to the 
list.  Can you see your own submissions???)

Well, its finally my turn!

After buying the 77 midget last fall, and starting to work on itthis 
winter, I need some advice! (like how much money can you really pour 
into one of these things anyway!?)Pulled the Z-S Carb off for a 
rebuild because the bowl was flooding and found out where the loud 
noises were coming from the one time Ihad managed to start the baby.  
A cracked exhaust manifold!

1.Is this unusual, and should I look for other Uh-Oh's?
2.What make of header and/or exhaust have people had good luck with?
3.Will I have to retune the carb?Thanks in advance!
