FYI.....I like to rub High Temp Silicone into the asbestose gasket rings.....it keeps them in place, and keeps them from blowing out... This seems to really help, in the long run.... Usually, the exhaust rings are the ones that blow out..... Be sure to use Anti-Seize Compound on the studs, and nuts..... .!!!!! Whie you are at it, clean the engine breather..!!

I agree about it usually being the exhaust gaskets that blow. Seems like I have to replace mine about every two years; that's why I equipped mine with brass nuts & SS washers. I use "neversieze" every time I put it together and it makes changing the gaskets practically a 15 min. job. The last time I had the manifold off, I found the exhaust ports on the manifold (especially the front one) had rusted away quite alot. I used a large flat file and filed evenly across all the ports on the manifold til I got down to some "meat" on the front port. A milling machine would be the thing to use, if I had one.

WWhere did you get your gasket rings from?

anti Seize is the only reason I was able to remove it this time...man was it rusty ...thanks to whoever put it together last..... I think Im going to put new studs and bolts in it while I have it apart..
Do you know what the torques specs are??

I took that engine breather off its soaking in gas at the same time to...I dont think this has ever been done due to the crustyness of it....

thanks for your help
