WOW, what a challenging job. I'm installing the headers for the 4.0L V6 and could use some help.
So far I've got the drivers side manifold head nuts off (middle bottom nut was a PITA), The O2 sensor disconnected (tip: use a small flat blade screw driver to help with the clip), the 14mm collector flange nuts off, I've removed the bolt on the brace by the collector flange and loosened the spring loaded y-pipe bolts
ALL OF THIS WAS on the drivers side only (1.5 hours). The dilema...
Do I have to remove everything from BOTH sides before I can "wiggle" the OEM headers off? After doing only one side I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to "wiggle" the OEM header off. The long threaded posts on the stock headers by the collector flange is keeping me from getting things apart.
I'm doing this job SOLO so any quick advice is appreciated!
