I've started stripping the scrapyard V8 with a view to keeping stuff that might be handy and binning anything that isn't.
I've discovered both exhaust manifolds have a small Flexi joint under the heatshield, and on both manifolds they are distorted and split.
Is this a common problem? My car has what sounds like a manifold leak, and my plan had been to clean up the faces on these ones and swap them in when I do the heads...
Is it worth trying to repair them? Anyone just sleeved with solid pipe instead?
