D-17 manafold help

Report to Moderator

I have a 1958 d-17. The original muffler has rotted off a long time ago. The original owner just put a muffler in the manafold that was close to the same size. Now ever time it rains I take the chance of getting water in the exhaust. I want to restore this tractor but i am having a hard time getting the bolt out of the manafold that held the original muffler on. Has anyone ran into this type of problem before. If so what did you do? I am thinking about drilling out the bolt and retapping the hole. I am open to sugestions on how to fix this.
Also I have never restored such a large piece of equipment. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
I have been getting every book on this model tractor that came with it is 1957.
thank John

Try heating manifold around the bolt and try to work it back and forth to loosen. Most often they will break and if it does grind surface flat then drill and tap it.
