Thx, I'll order all those too I guess, can you give me an estimate on how much time it would take a mechanic to install them?

Re: WK 4.7L Driver's Side Exhaust Manifold & Gasket Replacement Writeup W/ Pics

So I finally went to install all these parts minus the manifold itself, and the mechanic who did the job told me he thinks that the manifold is warped that's why all this happened... Damn it, I regret not having bought that manifold part too.. Anyhow the noise is gone, jeep sounds normal now, mechanic said to cross my fingers it holds up...What do you guys think? How come they say usually you just need to just change the gasket, nuts and bolts...

Re: WK 4.7L Driver's Side Exhaust Manifold & Gasket Replacement Writeup W/ Pics

Because the manifold doesn't always warp, often the bolts fail because they put the smallest bolts on the manifold at the rear where they have the most work to do. Must have been a design from the '70s that they pulled out of mothballs. Lots of backwards junk then!

Re: WK 4.7L Driver's Side Exhaust Manifold & Gasket Replacement Writeup W/ Pics

nice write up. i am always impressed that some people are able to break their stride and stop and take pictures. no way i could do it, i always say to myself man i shoulda taken pics. I found it amusing that you felt it necessary to provide a disclaimer for the repairs and copyright the pics (law student?) and than go on to offer first aid advise with no such disclaimer.
anyways glad theres people like you willing to take the time to teach
