View Full Version : RB25 exhaust manifold wont go back on?

03-18-2012, 12:52 AM
I'm putting my Rb25 manifold back on the enginer. There were a number of studs missing and the studs that were on it were different to the stock ones. I bought OEM studs and nuts to replace the mismatched, broken and missing ones. I can't get the stud closest to the cam gears in and so I left it with nothing in it. I went to put the manifold on to find it now doesn't fit. The studs dont align with the manifolds holes. As far as I am aware the manifold is standard. Help please! :(

You sure you didnt put them on cock-eyed/off centered?

Same thing happened to be. A hammer fixed it :)

When the manifold heats up, it expands. Hammer method works or a little light sanding in the holes that are binding.
