360 Exhaust Manifold Bolt Question
I am finishing a rebuild of a 360 and was set to bolt the exhaust manifolds back on, when I realized the holes on the manifolds (which the bolts pass through) have a considerably larger diameter than the bolts themselves. I do not have the AIR system on this truck, so maybe they served as some sort of spacer?
Regardless, while I guess I could just bolt the manifolds to the heads while holding them in place and hoping they don't ever slip, I figured I would ask you all on here first.
I went through all of the threads I could find and there was never a mention of it - or if there was I missed it.
Thanks in advance!
