Actually, I inadvertently did disconnect the battery. The battery tray was missing the bracket for the fuse box under the hood. I disconnected the battery to replace the battery tray with a unit thy had the bracket attached. So, ya, I reset the ECU.

Yes, it was the rear two bolts on the exhaust manifold. Top one was the stud, bottom bolt. Both were missing, not broken off. I couldn't get the stud bolt out of the JY Cherokee so I used two bolts. Looked up the torque specs and bolted them down. No more leak, runs great. So lucky. Huge time and effort saver on this flip.
