leaky intake

my 258 was running a little rough so i sprayed carb cleaner along the flange for the intake and exhaust manifold. I got to the front of the ewngine and the carb cleaner got sucked in. whats the easiest way to replace the gasket?

Re: leaky intake

Pretty straightforward process. Just remove all of the exauhst/intake bolts and pull both manifolds back just far enough to where they seperate from the two studs that hold the intake in place. Clean up the area, replace gaskets and rebolt.

That might not solve your problem though. I replaced the gaskets twice before realizing that both my intake and head were warped. I had to have them both resurfaced.

Re: leaky intake

1. Get out your manual..
2. It's time consuming to do the job right,
3. But not complicated.
4. Follow the procedure,
5. Be sure to use a torque wrench,
6. Put anti-seize on bolt, studs and nuts,
7. Soak EVERYTHING in PB Blaster before you attempt to remove bolts/nuts.
8. Be sure to do this on a COLD engine,
9. Repalce the intake/exhaust manifold gasket as a set at this time.
