new manifold core plugs are 2.50 each from CGB, you should be able to get a full manifold for less than 30. pain in the arse to fit, as the carb has to come off tho..

Yeah, I did have a look, and does look a bit of a mission.  

Unless anyone can tell me how to bypass this, as previously mentioned could be done, then I will get the bung....

Do these plugs just push in with a bit of sealant around them?

It's very easy to bypass the cooling, but I might of forgot the original setup.  :oops:

You should have the following pipework if I remember correctly.

Water pump to Carb base > Carb base to inlet manifold > inlet manifold back to water pump.

What you want to do is remove the carb base to inlet manifold pipe, then the inlet manifold back to water pump pipe needs to be removed and attached to the now open port on the carb base.

Hopefully that makes sense, this way you still have the coolant flowing around the base of the carb (needed for winter mornings IMO) with the inlet manifold completely disconnected.
