Leaking Exhaust manifold.... HELP

Ok, i just replaced my OIL BLOWING 258 with a rebuilt 258. Found out my intake manifold had a crack in it so the garage picked up a used one. I now have a leak at the exhaust gasket. Will having the exhaust manifold machined solve my problem?? Think maybe it is slighty warped to old gasket and motor and needs resurfacing?? Do i just need to get a new manifold? Also what is everyone opinions on headers?? Do they leak bad??

88 YJ with fresh rebuilt 258 with Weber carb, new clutch assy, that FINE peugot heap, 3" body lift, still awaiting replacement seat...mine is broke!

I say just get a new one. ........Headers are cool If you're down there anyways or getting the labor done anyways...otherwise why do it? just my 2 cents

Machining should do the trick if you don't want to get involved in headers. You have to take it to a shop along with the intake manifold. A shop that is set up to machine them together because they mount together. Don't ask me why I know this. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
