Exhaust Manifolds

I am considering replacing my exhaust manifolds. Snow plowing and salting have taken their toll on them and the look real bad. I am wondering where I should buy the manifolds and bolts from. Also how much time I should budget for the job. Thanks.

You can buy the manifolds right now on ebay.I did see several last night for sale for both the driver and passenger side.Just type in 6.5 diesel manifold and it'll come right up.

The bolts you can probably buy from a shop that deals from almost everything industrial.Or you'll most likely find them online.

In regard to how much time involved,it depends whether how badly the bolts are corroded or seized within the manifold,etc.Some bolts will be more stubborn than others.

The bolts required are best to get from the dealer.
They are specially made for the job and need to be tourqued to the factory specs,there are 2 specs listed 26,35 I suppose is the range in FTlbs.

The reason for buying factory bolts is that the thread design is made such that when tourqued they allow the manifold to expand and contract from heat in such a manner as to retain thier clamping force and prevent leaks.Normal grade 5 bolts won't behave in the same manner.

You have more mechanical experiance than I to robert, I was able to remove mine without a problem. Lube the hell out of them for a few days. Be sure to reconnect the turbo oil return line. I am guilty of that. Its not that bad of a job though.

the drivers side was about an hour. the passenger side was a couple of hours due to the turbo. If your going to test it I would say start with the drivers side. You can get all of the bolts by removing the tire and the rubber shield. you will need some extensions and some swivels. (and a case of elbow grease).
