I am fighting with the manifolds on Angie's Camaro. Specifically I am fighting to remove the exhaust pipes from the bottom of them so I can pull the motor.
What are your tricks for removing the nuts without breaking every stud? I have tried penetrating oil, heat is not an option do to space constraints, and I don't want to break every one off.
If my only option is to break them all as I have the first one, how tough is it to install some brass studs? Are the manifolds tough to drill?
By the way, I now hate tranny fluid in a very special way...
