P1ss off the tray.
Use gaskets between the manifold and the head.
I put a drop of superglue at each end of the gasket and glue it to the head first, to stop it dropping down when putting on the manifold.
Then just wack on the manifold and do it up.
Bolt it all up dry as a dummy run first to make sure all the bolts do up right and the manifold fits nice.

Re: intake installation

The valley pan is intended to keep hot oil off the bottom of the intake.

Re: intake installation

USE VALLEY TRAY. no side gaskets, with end seals. a dab of ultra blue at the four corners where block and head meet. nip all bolts up evenly. inner 4 bolts 25 ftlb. outter 9/16 size bolts 45ftlb. cheers

Re: intake installation

I blow off the cork valley gaskits. Just one fat bead of silicon on the block and sit the manifold on, then cut off excess, if any, when dry. Use good parts cleaner to ensure a spotless surface to maximise sealer bond.

Re: intake installation

definetly tru blu. i never use cork ends, if they are my only choice i just use ultra blue. if i have the neoprene end seals and the correct manifold end gap i'll use them. but just the ultra blue or equiv does the job perfectly well. i always use all purpose thinners to clean up the surfaces. cheers

Re: intake installation

If using the corks, i put two small roll pins in each end of the block, and pop the corks over them. Fool proof from then on.
Or if not using corks, i use Ultra Grey Loctite as it matches the manifold better color wise if alloy. When dry, i run a sharp stanley knife along it to clean it up and it looks sweet.

Re: intake installation
