Broke Manifold Studs

While doing my PI swap I broke 3 of the manifold studs off; I used Liquid Wrench too!

What do I do next? Do I have to buy OEM studs or can I go to the auto parts store and get something?

i personally would see if you have any type of a fasteners shop there. Take the bolts and they'll be able to get you something the exact same thread and size, plus they are much stronger in the 1st place!

Bolts

Try your local Ace Hardware store.............our local store has everything from stainless to brass, hex head to cap screws, standard to metric. That's my choice to buy bolts.

And while you're out, grab a can of PB Blaster and dump that Liquid Wrench. I've been able to get bolts and nuts loose with PB that I thought would have never even budged.

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

I'm with fordman; the pb blaster works, just spray it the day before you want to work on it, and it comes off like it's new...

I took my exhaust off this spring, and didn't even bust a knuckle...
