e6 manifold replacement question....
#1

I am in the process of changing out the cracked e3 exhaust manifold on my newly aquired 84 svo. I have everything disconnected except the lower bracket and the lower oil line. I can't see how the lower bracket bolts on. Any help? Also, do I just unbolt the lower oil line from the turbo? thanks for the help!!!!

Heh, I just took a turbo off from the junkyard. The bracket you're talking about has a single 13mm bolt on the block, then it attaches after the turbo, held on by the two lower turbo nuts. The oil line is easy if you get under the car. Two 10mm bolts, then it pops off. Much like the EGR valve.

Make sure you do the bracket before the oil line, the flange on the oil line won't fit through the bracket, so the bracket will just hang on the oil line until you swap the manifolds.

It is easier to take the oil return line completely off the turbo and block.

Leave the bracket attached to the turbo. Get the turbo and manifold on the workbench where you can work with it easier.

The two nuts holding the bracket to the manifold can be a bear to break loose, and if you are not careful,and use a boxed end wrench, you will round them off. Then you do have a problem.

Soak with penetrant such as JB Blaster, or Permatex before breaking the nuts loose.
If it ain't old, it ain't s***!!!!

Use a SIX point socket for all the bolt heads, a twelve point socket or wrench will round them off for sure. Also, lots of heat and penetrating oil will help. Be patient, they get brittle with age and can easily break off! (Ask me how I know this [Image: frown.gif] )Don't forget to use Grade 8 bolts and antiseize compound on the threads when you put things back together. Good luck!

Unless you live up north where the drain back tube usually appears to be one piece with the block! DAM RUST!
