3.5 L fire breathing hunk of awesome power. Or?
Passenger side block to manifold

I need to replace as they have blown out. Any tips/tricks/suggestions that will make my work in the driveway smoother?

Thanks in advance for replies as I try and bring the old beastie back from its post Annual blowout.

You blew them out at the annual?  Maybe you should stop doing burnouts and donuts in the middle of Area 5...

Actually on the way home. My rt side cat, which Colin and I had figured was rattling, must have collapsed and while driving home and I lost half my power, but then the manifold gasket and the header to downpipe gaskets popped out and it got louder but I got home. So exhaust all reworked....just need to finish this up and I should be back to more (cough cough) power

I can't say I have any special pointers to make it easier.  Standard stuff does apply - start soaking the bolts in PB Blaster (or penetrating oil of your choice) now as they're surely rusty.

 

If you get a wild hare and want to bring it to Walnut Grove I"m happy to lend shop space/tools/assistance, but I know that's a bit of a drive.

'07 LR3 HSE/HD - slightly non-stock

'96 D1 - even more non-stock

If you haven't updated your y pipe the later style 1 piece I would do that 1st if you want a power upgrade.. I did it recently to an 87 and what an improvement! !

 

As far as the manifold to head gaskets go you did order the later 2 gasket type?  passenger side is easy except for the rear stupid bolts that hold the starter heatshield on (I always do away with them)  should be pretty easy Mike.. don't even need to unbolt the y pipe.

No, stockish Y pipe. But I got it done. Those stupid "bolt locking tabs" are annoying as heck really.  But got them un bent, bolts off and new 2  per side gaskets in.

 

Feels like a new truck.
