Re: [DML] Exhaust re-work

I know I used copper anti-seize on the manifold studs for the X-over pipe. I -believe- that I used lead anti-seize on the exhaust studs.

I did replace the studs. I also replaced the manifolds, so the X-over pipe was mounted to fresh studs.

Although the stud ends and the nuts look absolutely horrible, perhaps there is enough good metal underneath to support removing them without breaking them. I'll find out soon enough I guess.

If I do snap some off, I do own a 90-degree drill, torches, various extractors, etc from the first time I did this job.

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.
