Manifold


Recommended Posts


The exhaust manifolds are cast iron and they can be welded. I would tack them in place to keep the gasket plane in line then take it off and finish it, but that might be overkill I don't know, it might be too hard to get to. Read up on cast iron welding on this site:

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

Not all exhaust manifolds are cast iron. Depending on the engine in that Eldorado, it could have stainless steel "tubular" exhaust manifolds, no? I thought the HT4100 engines had stainless steel manifolds. If it is the Oldsmobile 350 diesel, it does have cast iron manifolds, and a used manifold from any 1981-1984 Olds 307/350 engine will work as a replacement. The diesel manifolds won't have the bung for the oxygen sensor. If you get a gas manifold, it'll have a threaded hole, and you should be able to find a suitable to cap it.

Sorry about that. I have a HT 4.1 on the car. I would like to know how hard is it for me to replace the manifold. Is there an easy way to work on it or should I leave it to the Pro's. I also will need a new oil tube, can I get any info on where I can buy one.
