just bot a 74 2002, not to bad of shape according to the 5 gallon overhaul that it was given....but that's another story.

i purchased a webber 38 double pumper & a cannon manifold upgrade. In attempting the swap, it appears that the head must be pulled in order to get to the nuts on the bottom side of the intake manifold. Yes this thing still has the original ERG valve and exhaust manifold (I can't imagine who those survived).

Am I missing something? Or is there an easier way to remove said original intake?

stubby wrench (12mm if you're lucky)

extensions, a flexy adapter, maybe a flexy 12mm socket....

I have a 'Gear-wrench' with a flexy head that often helps.

If you're unlucky, the nuts are 13mm instead of 12mm.

But they do come off. As do chunks of your knuckles.

It's not so easy, the first time.

While you're there, have a heart- to- heart with your starter and see if it'd

like to be upgraded to the E30M3 starter, because that's going to be the

easiest time to do it.

persistence!

Thanks Toby!

I appreciate the tip on the starter. I had thought about as well. Now I know.

And i shall for warn my knuckles. Is this best tackled with one or two six packs?

Look at the bright side its a 2 minute job with said head off, just a benni of a blown head gasket, have done it both ways and with head on right, thinkin like a German, it will get easier the next time.

Are you removing the EGR and emissions stuff? Once that is out of the way, it's really not that hard to get the intake manifold off. Remove the alternator, too.
