BBC 396 Ex Manifold Gaskets & Hardware Kit
I am planning to remove the stock exhaust manifolds off of the 396. They are starting to show some rust discoloration so I want to remove them, clean them off and jet coat or most likely stove paint them to preserve them and look better. I will be machining the exhaust manifold as I know there are minor warps causing exhaust leaks to the heads. I don't use gaskets there but plan to ensure all mating surfaces are straight.
My question is do you guys know of a good complete kit out there with the various parts suppliers (classic industries, impala bob, etc.) that sells a nice hardware replacement kit? What I am looking for is possibly stainless steel studs for the manifolds and a good quality manifold ring (donut), nuts and bolts for when I go to reinstall everything. Basically a complete kit. I am certain something will break upon removal. I haven't found an entire kit yet and only found parts of what I need.
thanks in advance!
