  • Exhaust Manifold Gaskets

    When I removed the exhaust manifolds from the 307, I noticed it had gaskets installed. I did not think that Olds installed gaskets on the cast iron manifolds, so I figure someone installed them. I have been getting conflicting information on whether it is necessary (or wise) to install a set. I've read that they should be installed if the manifolds are warped. Have you installed exhaust gaskets when you changed manifolds?

    They didn't have any from the factory, but it sure doesn't hurt to use them.

      I have always used gaskets on manifolds that did not mate up to their orignial respective mating surface.
      When installing them start with the two inners then the two outers and do not torque down the center bolt until last and do not torque it down too much.

        Ok, thanks for the info, guys. Much appreciated.

        BTW, do you happen to have a good set of manifolds for the '87 VIN 9, with the place for the oxygen sensor? Mine are in need of replacement.

            How much would you be asking for them?
