HD TD5 Exhaust Manifold Stud & Gasket Kit

  • Product Description
  • Product Options
One common fault with the TD5 engine fitted to Land Rover Defenders & Discovery Series 2 is that of exhaust manifold leak. This is often identified by a high pitched 'shriek' at high revs or under heavy acceleration.

This is caused by the difference in expansion & contraction rates of the cast steel manifold and the aluminium cylinder head - over time the standard manifold fixing studs can no longer cope, and they break, causing the leak.

This can be remedied by removing the standard studs and fitting one of our HD stud kits. These feature enhanced material for the stud itself, along with a steel spacer that sits between the manifold and the retaining nut, allowing the fractional movement that occurs whilst maintaining the seal between the head and manifold.

This kit consists of:
  • 10x Extended Exhaust Manifold Studs
  • 10x Spacers
  • 10x Flange Nuts
  • 1x Exhaust Manifold Gasket (L/R Part No. LKG100470)
  • 1x Exhaust Manifold to Turbo Gasket (L/R Part No. ERR6768)
  • 1x Cylinder Head Coolant Manifold Gasket (L/R Pt. No. LVJ000010)
  • 2x Turbocharger OIl Feed Pipe Copper Washers (L/R Pt. No. ADU6847L)
