some months ago i posted that i had a problem with an exhaust leak - most people said that the manifold would be cracked.

Happy to report -- it was just a dodgey Gasket and Warped manifold - took me about 6 hours in all to get the darn thing of due to the lack of room and needing to get a gas axe to chop 3 studs/ nuts that refused to move - then rounded them selves off ( and would not break )

also broke one stud into the head -- this little saga has faught me every step of the way -- i am getting a diesel next time -- a lot more room to work with :)

So off to find some gaskets tomorrow -- just finished machining up the header in my milling machine -- should have this beast back on the road, and to show soft roaders why they should have baught a real 4x4 :) ( yeh yeh i know the diesel guys will jump on me for this one )

see pics for details

P.s toyota 4 skinner
