Do I indeed need to raise the motor to get them on?
Should I remove the tranny support bolts?
can I somehow do one side at a time without having to remove both motor mount bolts at the same time?
thanks as always

Do the passenger side first. Remove the long motor mount bolt just on that side, then use a jack to lift that side of the motor up to get room. Put the manifold on and start the bolts (you don't have to tighten them yet). Drop the passenger side, re-install the motor mount bolt, then repeat the same process on the drivers side (remove the bolt, lift, install, drop and re-install the bolt). Once you're happy everything looks good and is lined up, tighten up the exhaust manifold bolts on both sides.

You shouldn't have to loosen the tranny mount or anything else --- there's enough give in the rubber mounts to let things move enough.

Tip: Put a goodly amount of anti-seize compound on all the manifold bolts, and everthing that bolts to the manifolds (like the head pipes). You'll be glad you did if you ever have to remove them again.

You're welcome sir. Those are nice looking manifolds. I'm curious to hear how you like them once you get the car going.

On the passenger side ex manif, the second bolt from the rear, the roundness of the metal is so close to the hole I cannot get a bolt in it. However the hole is bigger than the others. I tried cutting one of the 3/8'' bolts really short, with the idea of inserting it in "sideways' that didn't work either.
I may be able to put a stud down thru the top of the head to ex manif hole and nut the bottom.
Has anyone dealt with this?
thanks as always
