VW Thing manifolds 181.129.701 vs 113.129.701CA

VW Thing manifolds 181.129.701 vs 113.129.701CA
SilverThing
Early Thing engines (up to AM 0 008 515) used manifold 181.129.701, which is the upper manifold in the picture.

Later Things used 113.129.701CA, which is the lower manifold. Unfortunately, the lower manifold's EGR port has been brazed shut and the EGR valve is missing.
