Re: [DMCForum] Exhaust Manifold Questions



I use a quarter inch drive and a six point socket to have a go at the
nuts. A 1/4" isn't really big enough to break anything and most will
come off like that. Anything tougher and you'd better hope they snap off
with the manifold and not with the head. Then use a quality stud
extractor to hoik them out. I've done about 8 manifold gasket jobs now
and have only ever snapped one stud off at the head that wasn't already
weakened.
