Replacing V8i 3.9 Manifold gaskets

Hello all, I need to replace the Manifold gaskets on the 96 V8i 3.9, any
pointers I should look out for ? it's the drivers side that's blowing, which
looks like a bitch of a job compared to the other side!! bugger!!! but it
could be worse I thought the tappets/cam had gone!! :-)

Cheers

are they standard cast iron manifolds? not all of the 3.5s have gaskets...
seems to work, in defiance of the odds. 4-branch stainless ones etc. do,
though, generally.

Hi Austin, they are the standard cast ones the stainless exhaust starts from
the downpipes on.

Re: Replacing V8i 3.9 Manifold gaskets

The fixings on our 3.9 were changed for the later type a while ago. Looks
like some sort of spacer on them
