Anyone have clearance issues with the exhaust manifold and the Cooland manifold
yup.... I did,,, you have the "technically wrong" manifold,,,,, dig up my thread "816 Jakes and turbo" and the pics will tell you what I had to do to make this manifold work.... I ended up grinding the arm of the manifold to squeeze it under the Thermostat housing. Then I ground on the thermostat housing itself,,, you can also get a machine shop to mill you some 1/4" spacers to sandwich under the water manifold ports to raise it up for clearnace... Mine has bee working fine. But I keep my eye open in scrap yards for the "correct manifold" Or go find the Thermostat housing off a SC 350 but that opens up another can of worms with the generator and plumbing.
