    I'm putting my truck back together today, installing the manifolds, and I have two quesions. First of all, I wanted to know if I should lather some high temp Locktite on the manifold and exhaust bolts so that they don't back out. Is this a good idea? BTW, I didn't find any info on this from searching.

    Also, I don't think my engine manual has the torqueing specs nor the torqueing pattern for the manifold bolts. Anyone with this info?

    I'd suggest using the copper Neverseize rather then locktite. If you torque them up properly, you'll be good as gold, especially in cast iron heads.

    Thank you. The guy at autozone told me to buy this high temp, high strength Permatex stuff that he said I will have no problems with. He did say though that if I use too much, then I won't get the bolts off again, so I figured it was the right stuff.

    Do the torquing pattern and the toque numbers appear in the engine manual?

    start at the ends and work your way to the middle

    Well, I found the bolt pattern in my 2F manual, but it didn't include the small bolts that are on the extreme ends of the manifold. I just mimiked the pattern for those too. BTW, the engine manual says to work from the middle out. First top middle, then botttom middle, then top outside, and then I did the farthest outside. It took me a long time because I couldn't line up the ones on the outside. The manifolds are on though. Soon....
