Thanks for the info, I noticed in some stock diagrams that the collector areas have studs in the actual manifold itself. Mine are rusted way beyond the point I can save them. Has anyone replaced the studs in the stock manifolds? If so, is it retapping one size up or are there any whammies I need to look out for? It seems once I get them off, I can remove the old studs (assuming drill them out bc they are 34 years old and rusted), retap and then replace with new studs? I just want to make sure I am not doing something that would cause a potential leak.
Also does anyone have any links to where I can score new OEM manifold bolts for the block?
