    I’ve been MIA working on some much needed house projects, and this has unfortunately put my engine build on the back burner. I am just now getting caught up on this thread and saw that you needed some help surfacing your manifold. I know it’s late but if have not been able to get it done yet I can help you out. At some point I thought I saw you were close to SD so it would be easy to meet up. Let me know.

    Thanks for the offer. This truck goes on the back burner too,lol. I was able to have my local fab shop stick it on their belt sander. Possibly I might have a leak near the front but I’m going to let it heat cycle before I try to get it sanded again. Gasket gets slightly thin in that area. I work in San Diego. I’m in the area pretty often.

    No problem. Glad you were able to get it done. If your in SD often I think some beers and truck stories are in order in the near future.

    Don't use a gasket. Use wood oven gasket maker. Dried into a cement and seals even the shitiest surfaces

    Its what I use. :notsure:

    Even with a flat flange, a lot of ppl complained about leaky metal crush gaskets over time. A proper multi layered steal gasket is what you really need but this works well also, especially if your flange was as shit as mine. With the cement, had no issues.

    Wow nice stuff. Let me follow up where this manifold is coming from. The internet would try to shame me if i use gasket maker to fill my gaps on a part I cut and welded from scratch. Chinese stuff, I get it. This flange was particularly difficult to work with as a real first time home made manifold with limited tools. I also had to weld in and grind flat that machined pocket. Next time just doing a cheap plasma cut flange instead of this. You can see the belt didn't fully get cylinder 1 and 4.


    Edit: also I'm lucky that gasket you see is MLS for the head.

    Did you have it bolted or welded to a heat sync of some sort, while welding?

    You could always put it in a furnace and get the whole piece up to about 1200°,then bend it true.... Like sword blacksmiths. Then quench it and stress relieve it in an oil bath around 400° for roughly 3 hours. Then it'd be super strong and straight! :D

    I was planning to let the turbo do its work, lol. I've been known to get my old one red orange pretty often about 1500 to 1700 F. I messed up not doing the heat sink on this guy. Learned the hard way here. Sch 40 is a whole lotta heat to weld single pass.

    I'm no blacksmith, but knew the numbers were somewhere around there.

    Need to capture some GoPro footage of the header reaching glowing temps.

    That would be cool. I’ll keep that in mind. I know out in the dirt bouncing off the rev limiter is when it does it.

    Ahh, for the engine mount, I just used the Toyota MLS gasket. Mine wasn't perfect but it sealed up. The T4 flange was where I used the stove oven gasket maker. That flange was about as flat as the north Atlantic in the winter. Ok, maybe not that bad but metal crush gasket provided was not going to seal shit.

    The surface job looks rough. I would find a place that does engine deck work and get it machined there if you continue to have leaks.

    It's probably a 40 grit belt. Maybe 80. I might sand it lightly on a flat table. Pic looks rougher than what it is. Haven't ran it yet. New 3" downpipe and few intake parts and I'll be ready. So far I've been lucky t3 flanges seal up well for me with the small bolt pattern.

    That Porter Cable, Grizzly, or whomever 6" wide belt sander. The Ryobi that I have was a need now purchase. I need an overal wider and longer belt sanding surface, with more current to prevent it from stalling out.

    @OVTune doing big things. Like where he’s going with his developments. Just saw this deep oil pan posted in his website. I wonder if there’s a sump issue like the 1gr with the shallow pans.

    I have a small wood corded sander. I was too lazy to clean it and went to the guys with the big toys. Kinda tapped out on tools to fit in the garage right now.

    There is an oiling issue related with the heads not being able to drain quickly enough on incline. Not sure about the pan. Have heard that the lower oil pan is shallow. Doesn't mean the upper is though.

    Snag some pictures of it, when you get the chance please?
