    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.

    thanks for using repairpal
