    how 2???

    Post by Admin on Tue Sep 25, 2012 9:45 am

    b4 i hurt myself or something---anyone got any tips or tricks for hanging the assembly by oneself in a van??

    preferred sealants??--i am thinking permatex aircraft stuff---wondering about that copper filled stuff for head gaskets???

    i figured to put 2 long bolts in the lower row to get it hanging there and then drop the gasket set in

    vans are such a pita where the engine is concerned--think it will go on the auction block when fixed--

    Ive noticed that 3-4 arms are the best in putting together the manifolds on the 6's.

    I was able to put it together by putting the exhaust on and then loosly putting a couple bolts in there and then lowering the intake in there while holding the exhaust and slowly loosing those bolts I had put in fingerish tight.

    Hope that helps.

    Replacing manifold or just gaskets? Those 300 exhaust are prone to warping, gasket might not hold for long.
    I use pernatex spray Hi-Tac for intakes, gas won't attack it. All I use it for is holding the gasket in place, shouldn't need pooky if the gasket is doing it's job. If I need something on exhausts, I use the Ultra copper sillycone.

    gaskets only--they(manifolds) were amazingly straight--rigged up a lift system using rope ratchet tiedowns--managed to get it in place without any damages to me or the parts--using a 2gc with riser adapter, so fabbing up an intake tube using one from the old 88 1 ton--i don't believe i have ever run into any gaskets that were baked so solidly on the head--took a buncha chemicals and some sharp chisels to get that junk offa there
