4 cyl exhaust manifold studs.

Postby SNJEscape - November 18th, 2020, 8:29 pm

Hello everyone, I have to replace the flex pipe between the exhaust manifold & the cat converter & all the bolts are rusted badly. I do not have a torch to heat them & a torch used for plumbing doesn't get them hot enough. I was wondering if the studs in the exhaust manifold where the flex pipe bolts to it are pressed in or if the are threaded in?. Any help would be appreceated.
