Default Exhaust Manifold Fasteners

Did soak them in PB Blaster...

Problem is there is a strange corrosion problem going on, like the truck was nose-dived down a salt-water boat ramp, or followed a salt-sprayer...

All of the bolt-heads have corroded down to a rounder and smaller size.

I can't even get a socket to bite any of the 8 bolts.

Thanks GTyankee...

Those would make the job a cinch, If the studs don't twist apart ...
