The battle against the M38A1 exhaust manifold continues apace. Today I took the sawzall to it and cut off both of the side pipes. I then whacked on the center flange with Dremel tool and cold chisel.

The remains are held on by three studs. Two of the flanges around the studs have been broken, so there's less than 360 degrees of contact. The one remaining stud is really awkward to get to.

It's soaking in penetrating solution now. If it doesn't budge in a few days I'll just have to cut it into increasingly smaller pieces...
