Re: Cracked Exhaust Manifold

This is a ridiculoulsy common problem on stock Ford truck manifolds. My driver's side manifold on my '90 developed a crack which eventually spread all the way around. When I removed it it came off clean in two pieces. I got some manifolds for free from a buddy who had installed headers. As for leaks/gaskets, at the advice of an experienced mechanic I took the new manifold to my local machine shop and had the mounting surface planed. No gasket, no leaks. As mentioned above, was about $25 in labor.
