I finally decided to replace a leaky manifold as the low compression and leaking oil has gotten to be too much. Not sure but it looks like I’ll have to remove the intake manni to get to it. A fortunate side effect is that the oil leaking from the manni seems to have lubricated most of what would be rust-welded bolts. I’d driven it like this since I bought it 3 yrs ago (don’t judge me. lol).
Anyone have any experience on this engine? Any tips would be appreciated. I have everything soaking in PB Blast now.
