I'm stilll waiting on service manuals and not quite sure which way to go. I'm trying to remove the manifold but with the studs it will hit the compression release shaft coming out of the back of the diesel engine when I try to remove it. If I remove the pony motor it looks like the bottom mounting studs will give me the same issue I won't be able to come up high enough to clear the studs before it hits the shaft. I thought about removing the studs but would probably mess them up since they are fine thread. Do you have to remove the compression release lever and shaft?
I also need to either repair or replace (if anybody might have one for sale) the water elbow pipe from the pony to diesel engine. The pipe that is in it has been brazed in. The pipe is rusted bad but I think the dimension is 1.125" if somebody could verify that would be great.
