I have a 77 z and i need to pull of the intake and put it back on a diffrent engine. They, the engines, are both out of the cars and on the floor. I have two questions.

1. What type of intake gasget should i use, and what is needed. any sealent?

2. how do you get these apart, without damanging anything, i don't see the bolts to remove? how many are there, and should i be careful about breaking any bolts?


thanks, jason

If your car is stock bosch fuel injection, first remove the injectors and fuel rail, be careful not to damage the injector tips this is the heart of the induction system. Remove all hoses needed for disasembly and label them for easy reinstall. The manifolds are coupled through a series of very FAT washers (large diameter and Very thick) under the intake maniforld. These are two separate units and are not directly connected. The intake should have six bolts on top that thread into the head, not strip or break these head repairs of this nature are very time consuming. Under the intake are the studs that contain the FAT washers, there are six here. Studs are easier to replace if one or five become unusable, but they too are threaded into the head so use caution. The exhaust is held on by three additional studs that have no bearing on the intake directly. The manifold gasket must have cut outs for the injectors that match the head. If you like spray the gasket only with copper seal, but this is not required if you install a new one. And do not over torque the bolts! Good luck on the engine swap.
