The alternator twists the crossover; high rpm shifts are what does it, lol.
That's how I broke the stock pos plastic manifold in Lazarus.
My metal crossover PI hasn't had this problem yet.
The fix is an overrunning clutch in the pulley on the alternator like the newer cars have.
EDIT: I'm A DA; I missed this "water jacket off of the intake where the heater core hooks up." Ain't done that yet.
