Recommended Posts

Assuming there are 6 bolts to mount the manifold to the block ?

If so - I am missing one ....... where do I get another - local parts store carry ?

Yeah - 12 :)

6 top was the ones I meant ....... but 12 total plus the ones for the turbo (4).

Seems like My#6 top one is missing - and the bottom one is also loose ........ hoping this is the cause of my 'echo' comming through my BHAF/elbow.

Found a match at lowes - but guy said it wouldn't handle the heat on a manifold - I didn't think that would be right - but last thing I want is to fight with a broken bolt in the #6 port.

So off to junk yard today and pick up some ...... gonna look around whilst I'm there and see whats what - looking for new grill also.

Picked up a new polisher last week - gonna buff the heck out of my truck and see what happens - its almost 10 years old now - but hopefully put a bit of shine back into her.

mwaaa :banghead:

ok - 3 parts stores, 2 junk yards and eventually got the bolt at the "stealers" for $14 (with spacer).

The problem is - didn't fix my sound. :cry:

Going to have to redo the valve-lash adjustment - see if anything loose.

Any tips/ideas on how to check for a leak in the manifold ???? I guess I would have to pull it together with the turbo ? Wondering if there is a small leak/crack somewhere - either underneath or near that #6 since there was a missing bolt.

the ford house isn't any better. but my buddy's 94 GMC 3/4ton has the cheapest price for parts.

I am thinking what you hear is normal sounds.

yeah - except the sound definately wasn;t there before - so kinda freaking me out. taking it to mechanic monday. Tried a stethoscope - hard to distinguish sounds. Closest sound I could find was when I had it on the injector lines when it pulses. But way to hard to tell if that was the same sound or just similar. Trucks killing me. Well - whadda-ya do. Mike/W+F - why do u guys have to live so friggin far away - considered a move to MO ? We have a good baseball team :thumbup2: How about I just fly one of you out here for weekend an put you up in hotel and you just go over my truck ...... might even be cheaper for me :lmao2: :banghead:
