How to seperate the intake from exhaust manifold flathead 6 226 254
I need some tips on separating the manifold. I've soaked the bolts with ATF/Acetone mix, tapped lightly on the intake and tried tapping a small flathead screwdriver in between the two in the gasket material but they seem very happy together.
The intake is broke but the exhaust is good, so I'm trying to be careful to save the exhaust manifold. they always seem to be broke so I'm hoping I can sell this thing, assuming I can get them apart. I also thought about leaving them together and letting the new owner deal with it but it ads a lot of weight.
