Manifold Bolt Removal
Q: What is the prescribed method
for removing exhaust manifold bolts effectively?
most effective and prescribed method is not to break any of the bolts
while removing the exhaust manifold. In our region rust is a major problem
with exhaust manifold bolts. It takes heat (torch), patience and a sense
of feel that is acquired through experience. Even with that, and 1or 2
hours, exhaust manifold jobs can turn into a day or twos work because
of 1 rusted bolt. Best of luck..
