I have an X-18 with a 351 H/M Volvo 280 package.
The motor failed, and I built up a new 351W unit.
However, I can't get the Redline exhaust manifolds I have to seal properly at the riser gasket.
I am looking for replacements and don't know what to use.
Both Redline and Hi-Tek are out of business.
Stainless Marine does not support Ford products.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Don

Hi Tek is not out of business. Rather, the business is for sale...
They are still producing exhaust systems.

I e-mailed Allen (the owner of Hi-Tek in Australia). His response:

"Hi Sean,

We're still open for business ,I donít know who would have said that. If you can, can you get rid of that for me . I only have it for sale as I am 72 and I have been doing it for 25 years its someone else's turn.

Regards,
Allen."

They are probably a dealer/distributor. Although looking at their products, they may be an entirely different company.


At any rate, I always deal direct with Australia (and save) :)

I will contact HiTek and look into Barr.
Very much appreciate the advice and research.

the hi teks look the best by far, if the motor is not really warmed up the barr should be fine
