Should I remove the bolts, put some sealer on them and put back? Seems to be leaking very slowly over time. This is only occuring on the center bolts of both sides, the front/rear are not leaking. This is a factory cast 2bbl manifold. Or maybe don't even worry about it :confused:.



Thanks! :D

Closer inspection, looks like the leak was originating from the 2GV carb base gasket, running down the side of the manifold below the carb and settling where the bolts are. As I'm rebuilding the carb and replacing the base gasket, this should be resolved. Thanks!

Hey surfdog, I like the looks of that '64 wagon in your avatar!
Maybe I'm just partial.

Thanks Dan, it's a looker from 20'. But hey, it's got character. Most of it's duty is making the 2 mile trip to the beach :D. Just finished a front end rebuild with disc brakes.

Pulled the manifold bolts out one at a time. Coated with oil :eek:. Cleaned up the bolts and the threads (as best as I could) and reassembled. Should be good to go. Thanks guys!
