Hedmann header

Okay boys getting ready to tear into this header install. I cant believe this intake and exhaust is tied together in this tiny area! Any suggestions would be GREAT! 1984 CJ7 with 4.2 6cyl

A very light "shmear" of RTV around the intake ports is a good thing. Come up to the torque spec in stages starting with the inner bolts and moving outward. Retorque after a few heat cycles, then after a few days and then again next week.

Good luck.

I read somewhere else that you may have to remove the motor mount to get the header down into position the first time, also something about it being a tight fit with an auto tranny tranny but I have the T5 so hopefully it slips in there nicely! Any suggestions on where to start with the removal of intake or exhaust manny first?
