This is my second Howell install on a CJ... First one was on a 5o state '83 that took me about 8 hours over 2 days, hoping this can be done in 6.
I started spraying everything down with PB Blaster, but one difference on this jeep is the Smog Pump I would like to remove completely.
From the looks of this bolt, it's going to give me trouble, but does anyone know what the deal is with these bolts? Assuming it's not holding the manifold to the block, but are they like the hollow brake caliper bolts to inject air into the manifold?
If I break this bolt trying to remove it, depending on where it breaks, can I just cut the tubes and plug it with JB weld until I get a new manifold?
Looking forward to cleaning this up...
