Removing intake and exhaust manifolds.

16 July 2008

The engine in it’s very own, new, home:


1 – the intake manifold.  2 – all the manifold bolts removed, I didn’t follow a sequence for undoing them just dotted about loosening each one gradually.  3 – hard to see but there was a bolt that is screwed into the manifold with a nut holding it to the timing chain cover. This would not play nice, so I had to chop it in two.


1 – the intake manifold.  2 – the engine minus the intake manifold.


The exhaust manifold unbolted. In the left picture you can see the two sheared bolts I have in the exhaust flange plate.


1 – The fan drive spinny thing to be removed. And the alternator bracket about to be taken off.   2 – The parts removed.


The engine stripped semi bare.
