What did you plug the holes for the connecting tube with? I can't find a plug that size so I am thinking about cutting the pipe, flattening it, folding it and then welding it. If that makes sense.

You have the intake and exhaust that bolt together?

Yep I do, and that pipe that connects them is cracked. They are about $30 or better at the dealer from what I have seen. Don't wanna pay that. It's not a normal plug I can find at ace or box auto place so far.

Sorry it took so long to answer ... studying for finals.

I really, really wish I could punch The Laws of Thermochemistry square in the face right now.

Thermochemistry?? Guess I'm gonna have to respect you a little more!

Just a little FFT... I had the same setup on Clay's engine. I had problems with it from the get-go. After it was all wire-wheeled, cleaned, painted... after it was all bolted up and torqued down... after we fired it up and tuned the engine, it started leaking, bad! It had a crack in it! I don't know if this is realisitc for you right now, but I would find a later model intake and exhaust. They are independent of each other, no attachment. Nicer application and piece of mind.

Somewhere, early in Clay's thread, I address the exhaust manifold. Starts on page one...

With mine cracked I gave it some thought. With the EGR cut off and welded up the exhaust gas would have straight shot to the intake manifold. I cut the pipes off flush and had a new jeep bud weld them into plugs for me. Problem solved.

Found some wheels thru a FB site. Turns out he was a JF member too. Having a bit of a time cleaning em up. Not just dirt evidently. Spot oxidation and crud on inside of wheels suggests it was brake fluid or something similar.

Well, I tried every cleaner and polish there was and even bought the Mothers. No luck. I have now gotten bold and decided to go the steel wool and sand paper route. What the heck..... it'll buff out right?

Did you try Nevr-Dull? I've found it to work well. I've resorted to steel wool occasionally with no probs.

Neverdull was first. Its my usual go to. The etching from the mystery fluid is too much for just a polish. I wet sanded one with 800 grit then test polished it with a drill. I think it is gonna work. Just a tad scary seeing those lines and swirls. Gonna go try to get access to a big compressor and die grinder for the buffing to help speed it up

Here is a wheel cleaned but you can see the fluid etching. A pic after some 800 grit wet sanding to remove the etching. Hopefully with polishing the sanding lines will come out. Going to HF to get a pneumatic polisher to save me carpal tunnel syndrome . Any excuse to buy a new tool.

Last couple are from my Dad's Car club he belongs too. We went there for breakfast this morning nag hung out a bit. A lot of great guys a knowledge floating around that place. The East TN chapter was Founded in 1969 and a few at breakfast were some of those original members.

Last one is a photo of a photo. It is cold and raining up here. They have a bunch of bays, a lift, 2 compressors, tire changer, paint booth, storage and more. Neat place to come hang out with friends and work on cars.

That wheel looks much better. And I like the atmosphere.

A lot of great guys up there. I'm sure I could learn a lot faster if I could work up there. I have never been locked into a single car brand to be honest I have had Pontiac, Ford, Dodge, Chevy, Jeep, BMW, Infiniti and Honda. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few too. These guys LOVE their Fords though. I'll post up some pics later when I get a chance.

Some of the stories up there get real interesting, of course it can get deep too

Here is a finished wheel and the last one I have to do for a comparison. Took some elbow grease, well, a die grinder with a 4" cotton wheel and Mother's wheel polish.
