    All SBC exhaust manifolds will interchange as long as the 7th bolt hole is not needed on the earlier heads unless you buy the adapter to convert from 6 bolt to 7 bolt exhaust.

    They should pop off pretty easy. I wouldnt worry too much about worping them however they can sometimes be a b!tch to get back on. Thats when a manifold spreader is your best friend /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    The cast iron manifold shrinks and is a pain to get the bolts back in. The spreader makes it a lot easier then using pry bars. Out of the 5 sets of differnt manifolds ive worked on this year 2 i had to use the spreader on.
