:confused:My 86 spider has the 2 piece exhaust manifold. I've been trying to seperate the exhaust tube from the header tube(at the flange) so I can replace a blown exhaust gasket. I've taken the 3 bolts off the flange and loosened the cat supports, but can't get the two tubes to budge more than 1/16". Am I missing something??
Any wisdom will be greatly appreciated.

I guess I'll spend an hour taking the 3 bolts off the other flange and see if that helps:eek:

I finally got it

I mistakenly thought I only had to remove one set of flange bolts. Taking the other set off made it all do-able. 5 hours to replace 1 gasket. Sure as hell beats doing yard work:D
