Did he just say not 20-something... - I wish I was 40 something... opportunity and time is the biggest factor up here.

Got my new exhaust hoses and enough 1 inch hose to replace the intake to cooler section (rest was new already). Installed the new hose, and started my evaporust bath for the exhaust manifolds. Brought it inside the house so it will be warm enough for the stuff to work.

Loosened the coupling...separated coupling inserted feeler gauge. let the couple slight back a bit. use a feeler gauge to check coupling gap at 12:00, 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00 o'clock position. If too big for feeler gauge tight a bit.

If it's off in any of the positions you need to use the motor mounts engine position - up down left right...etc. there's a how to document here if you plan on doing it.

Just takes patience....
