Replacing exhaust manifold

Is there a link on how to replace the cracked exhaust manifold on my 97 tj? I searched but couldnt find a link or a how to...

I think its just unbolt and replace, or at least thats what I am hoping...

Thanks

Well, you have to remove the intake manifold too...it's not too bad at all. I haven't seen a write up, but I did it a few months ago.

Basically remove and label all connections to the intake manifold.
Disconnect fuel line
Loosen serp. belt
Remove power steering pump (not the fluid lines, just disconnect from intake manifold and move aside)
Unbolt manifold bolts.

You get the picture...

Another thing is the tightening (torqueing) sequence of the bolts when you put it back together. I'll grab that for you. Be right back...

Well I just got done. It took me about 4 hrs with the help of two of my friends who are mechanically inclined. What a pain in the .... Luckily I had a lift to use or it would have been even more of a nightmare. Well, I am glad its done and the jeep runs and sounds great again. Thanks for your help.

Glad it all went fine, some people have issues with getting the intake fully seated. Sounds like you nailed it though.

Congrats,
