Was just about to shove my cleaned up heatshield back on the manicat when I noticed this:
The bus seems to be running ok, albeit a little raspy at low / mid revs accelerating hard. But I'm pretty certain that those cracks are not meant to be there.
I'm going to have to find £300 soon, ain't I??
EDIT: Ignore me, I just had a look at some new ones online and they're the same! Bit bizzarre that they would put a split in the casting where a stud goes through tho, isn't it??
