I bought a Clearwater head but I gave it to my experienced mechanic to install it. I'm sorry I couldn't help you with the exhaust manifold.

My advice: do NOT reuse head bolts. Get a new set of bolts (these are "long" bolts to hold the head down to the block).

Watch YouTube video ->

Hope it helps. -chazzz

Re: damn 0331 cracked head

Head bolts can be reused 1 time. However, if reused they should get a dab of paint put on them to let the next guy know there 2nd use has been used up. I am building a stroker, so i will be using new ARP bolts. Thanks for the tip and input.
