I finally got the courage to tackle an exhaust leak on my '66 200 cid yesterday. The horror stories I've read and heard about breaking a bolt had me running scared for a while. I had been soaking the bolts in PB Blaster every night for a week and the manidold had a gasket installed, so I knew the manifold had been off the car at least once. I threw caution to the wind and all of them loosened but two. Of course the two I had problems with were the closest to the firewall. I've read some posts about leverage and the ears from either the head or manifold breaking off, so I only attempted them a few times before conseeding defeat. Yeah they scare me. I don't have too much mechanical experience though I'm wanting to learn. Am I using the wrong tool? I'm using typical 6 point socket with different extensions to get out past the manifold edge. Also, the manual said nothing about removing the starter, but it seems to be right in the way, not allowing me to get the socket on square with the bottom manifold bolt closest the the firewall. Any advice? Is a starter hard to remove and reinstall? I know these seem like dumb questions and probably elementary to most, but since I don't know, I have to ask.
