Removing the front exhaust manifold--
Good morning all-- so I ended up buying the part bike I was talking about in my last post, (which by the way, once it is apart I am sure I will have plenty left over to talk about if anyone is looking) first thing I did was attempt to swap the exhaust, and of course I broke a stud on the manifold. Now, the other stud was already broke, not badly but too short for a nut. I am going to try to replace the studs, but since the studs on my 94 are so rusted I am expecting that they may break off in the process.. I searched the site and have not been able to find any information about removing the manifold, most post that mentioned the manifold trailed off to other subjects. Can anyone give me some insight as to how to remove it, and what to expect once I do (any seals etc.) my engine skills and knowledge are limited, but I do know my way around a wrench. From what I see I would have to remove the radiator and fan, do I need to drop the coolant?? etc.. also any tips for getting the studs out which obviously would make a 5 hr project a 5 min fix??? Thanks, appreciate any help...
