Re: [DML] Exhaust re-work



Did you replace the studs the first time around? Did you use copper slip 
when reassembling the last time? If the answer to both of these is "no" 
then you may regret it :-(

In the cramped confines of the engine bay, what are the preferred methods of removing the exhaust manifolds? The fasteners are pretty badly rusted. I'm betting that the studs will come out rather than the nuts coming loose from the studs. Advice is appreciated.
