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??

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" />
