exhaust manifold corrosion


Recommended Posts

so after I installed the impeller yesterday I ran across a steady leak coming from the T-fitting in the exhaust manifold, after further investigation it looks as if the threads were crush and have been a storage for salt to corrode away the fitting. are these holes repairable... I figure I will try to temp fix it with JB weld and maybe order a new manifold? this needs to be fixed ASAP memorial day is right around the corner and the family is coming to town

Those EXT manifolds are big $$$, I would go ahead and order some good old cast iron ones, expecially if you run in salt water. Both sets will probably cost you what 1 EXT one would, plus it should last alot longer.
