I replaced a manifold last summer on a TO-30, but I do not know the origin of the new manifold, it came with the tractor when I bought it. If I remember correctly I used a thin open end wrench and 3/8 socket set. I had to purchase a small breaker bar for the 3/8 set as the ratchet would not fit the socket in the close quarters. I replaced all the nuts with new ones. It was a little uncomfortable at times but did get it done and it did not leak.

Bought one from here. It had a lot of grit in the runners. I put a lot of paint on a wad of clothe and pulled it through the intake runners to seal the grit. Didn"t want all of the grit going into the cylinders.

I bought one from here ( I think ) . Not sure if it was a sparex one but I was not too impressed with the fit. I had to do a LOT of die grinding to make enough clearance to get a socket in to tighten. Unfortunately I don't think there is any other option aside from used parts.

I would say they are all sourced from the same supplier reguardless of who you buy them from. I used one and had to grind on it. Yor other alternatives is to use allen head bolts, use a smaller nut that has been drilled and retapped to the correct size, or use one of the original manifolds.

I bought one about eight years ago from a local ford tractor dealer who is also a sparex vendor. I don't remember if it was a sparex unit or what but I do know I had no problem with the nuts fitting other than a tight fit.

I have installed a couple of new manifolds over the years and had to do a little die grinding to get clearance for the nuts to go on in several places. They weren't from Sparex but they may have the same problem.
