Spark plug wire stands on intake manifold

So I got around today to trying to figure out my spark plug wiring and to put the routing back to stock.

I have the new spark plug wire stands and didn't realize at the time I installed the intake manifold on the engine that these stands bolt on using the manifold bolts.

Obviously my mistake. So now my question is do I have to pull off the whole manifold and reseal it with new gaskets since I have to remove two bolts on the drivers side rear and one on the passenger side rear?

I'm assuming the worst case is that I do. The manifold is an Edelbrock RPM Air Gap installed on a 350 sb.

Thanks for any feedback.

Mike

Re: Spark plug wire stands on intake manifold

I'm sure the real experts will check in, but in the past I've removed a couple of bolts from the intake manifold for the exact purpose you're mentioning. I put Permatex on the threads and didn't have any problems but maybe I was just lucky.

Interesting that you've posted about redoing the wiring as stock because that's what I'm working on. But I haven't found satisfactory information about exactly how some of wire stands are mounted. I saw some good information in the AIM but not sure it exactly fits my engine (327/210hp). Anyway, where did you get your reference information on the exact routing of the stands and such? Do you have any pictures of a stock layout?

Good luck with your issue.
