A few weeks ago I began having engine problems.
Today me and my dad were going to try pulling the manifold, the exhaust, the carb and then the head.
One of the bolts on the exhaust manifold was already broke off..for I dont know how long. But then today we snapped the bolt the farthest to the front. My dad said it will have to be machined, and if we have to pull the motor to take it to a machinist, I might as well have it rebuilt.
Northstar Willys has rebuild kits for $425 I believe. A friend of my dads knows a machinist who will rebuild motors and is supposeddly pretty good. My dad said he will try to get over there on monday to ask about it. Around how much should I be expecting the rebuild to cost?
We ended up having to cut the exhaust off, because one bolt is snapped and the other one is rusted on there. Had to use the dremel to get that one off. No matter there, because I have my new complete exhaust system in my room, but we still need to get the manifold off.
Just felt like sharing my dilemma,
