exhaust manifold woes
 
:nonono: So working on my SBC today. Got the first manifold off last night with out a problem. The second one i worked on today. first two bolts come right out.Third one snapped flush with the head. 4th one just spins and doesnt come out. and cant get to the 5th one until the 4th ones out. Can someone give me some suggestions on how to get the 4th one out? I know im in need of a easy out and a helicoil so far :facepalm:

Never mind I got that bolt that keeps spinning out. Took a thread chaser to the head and the threads are just fine so thank god I dont need a helicoil. The other one Ill soak in pb and use a ezout :dance:

You are most Likely going to need a set of torches now. I cut the head off remove manifold and warm up studs a remove with a good set of vice grips. Not a fun job. Good luck.

The manifolds already off I just have that one bolt to get out that snapped flush with the head.
