quick exhaust manifold question
Hi all, doing the head gasket today on a 300tdi and trying to get the exhaust manifold off, but it will not budge. All bolts/nuts are off but I can't get the exhaust manifold to budge from the engine. I did not undo the bolts on the flange leading to the exhaust down pipe. Should I take a rubber mallet to the exhaust manifold or what should I do. I don't know how hard to hit it as it is cast and I have a tendency to hit things to hard then bad things happen. Any help?? pry bar??
thanks in advance
