Inline 6 intake manifold leak

I have a 69 Ford Inline 6. I beleive I have an intake manifold leak. My car stalls when I come to a complete stop at the light. The service manual stated that the intake manifold was part of the cylinder head. Do I have to replace the cylinder head as well as the manifold in order to fix the leak? Are they one unit? I am too chicken to find out the "hard way!"

Inline 6 intake manifold leak

take it easy slick, the manifold is attached to the head......your problem is probably just a head gasket it aint very expensive but if you remove the heads and manifold there is a certain order you have to tighten the bolts in when you put them back on so if you do it your self look into it a chilton's manual on the straight 6 bolt pattern....hope this helps....

Inline 6 intake manifold leak

you have the 170 or 200 cid engine?
I think your idle is'nt set correctly or the solenoid that keeps the engine running is not adjusted correctly or not working .
