Default Exhaust Manifold

Imagine you were looking at the RUSTIEST exhaust manifold you have ever seen. Imagine this truck was used for plowing and the salt has rusted the holy hell out of a ton of stuff. Today, we are talking about the exhaust manifolds which are so rust covered it reminds me of something out of the Dead Sea, all covered with salt. You can, if you look, see what could be bolt heads. So, what is going to happen if I try to change them? Right now, they are working fine.

Worst case, bolt heads get smudged, then you can't get 'em out. At least if they break off, you can still get the manifold off, then deal with what's left. If you do it, soak them with PB Blaster a couple of times, and let it sit for a while between soaks. Use a 6 point socket, and go slow. With any luck, the rust isn't on the threads, and once you get them loose, they'll come right out. Best of luck.
