I see the 1977 delta only works for the 1977 model year. Have you looked on the edelbrock etc websites looking for the manifolds. What part of the manifold is leaking?"

I haven't tried them. But tried a lot more. It's leaking right were the gaskets are.

Do you have any missing back out loosed up or broken bolts on the manifolds?I would remove the manifolds straight edge them if there not warped put them back on with new gaskets.

The most common reason for the exhaust manifolds to leak at the head is the bolts break loosen or back out. Let me know what you find.

Ok, one place called me saying they had olds manifolds. But it wont fit my chevy motor and I couldn't find out we're the Chevy 350 came from. If I take them off can I get them welded? Or what can I do?
