Same thing what i did to my xd disco. It's been 3 years now and no problem also passes New York emission inspection every year.

See why I love this guy? That's my kind of thinking! I thought about this (actually was thinking baby vicegrips just to get passed inspection), but dismissed it thinking the inspector might look up there or something and I really do need a more permanent solution than that. But you make it sound so much more viable with a baby c clamp.

Worth a shot I guess, but ordering gaskets and studs just in case and will pull the manifold Saturday if this doesn't work.

thanks again guys,
charles

Well looks like I wasn't so lucky this time. This manifold has nowhere to clamp to.

Also, there were no gaskets between the head and the manifold. I ordered some, and hopefully they will fit, but the parts manual doesn't list any. Seems very odd to me....

There was no gasket between the manifold and the downpipe, but the downpipe has a formed end and it looks like it should seal ok when bolted down properly.

Wish me luck getting these studs out (they all broke or got damaged)

Mmh, not sure it would have helped, but the reason I don't is to reduce the risk of burning myself. Maybe next time though.

Despite taking grandpa Bobeck's advice and heating the snot out of the studs before trying to turn them out, I broke all three. Oh well. All drilled and tapped now so no worries.

There was a recent article in our local paper about "abuses" of antique registrations in Virginia. Many beaters (certainly Janey is not of this ilk) are apparently taking advantage and the troopers are discovering "unsafe" vehicles being operated under these regs. It sounds like the fuzz is watching antiques with a discerning eye, and the Commonwealth may at some point revisit the issue and possibly impose restrictions.

The Commenwealth has started requiring proof that antique vehicle registrants also have a non-antique vehicle as well -- without one they won't issue antique tags. The state has always been very antique friendly, but due to all of the abuses, they started cracking down. The need to prove possesion of a "normal" car was a comprimise that took a while to sort out but seems fairly rational. At the end of the day enforcement is looking for shitbox novas that shouldn't be on the road, not "funny looking cars."

Removed the old broken studs on the bench. I'm waiting for parts today to be able to put the new studs in and reinstall the manifold.

I'll bet the ERR6733 later model gaskets would work just fine. They are joined and take care of 2 cylinders at a time. Plus, they are multipart so they seem to accomodate slight variations in head or manifold flatness well.

Yup, I think that's what I got, and they fit fine. Still find it odd that it didn't have gaskets installed, but oh well.
