Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
manifold bolt broken flush with manifold. headpipe warped and leaking exhaust from both places. 1990 motorhome with 460.

the real way to do this is to remove the manifold and remove the bolts, re thread the holes and replace with new ones.
the manifold will have to go to a machine shop to be planed straight. add a new gasket.

very labor intensive. as a torch will be used often to remove rusted bolts.
