      I bought my '84 replacements at http://www.marineexhaustmanifolds.com/

      Good to deal with.

      Skidim has also been good to deal with too. Didn't compare the prices though.

        Check inboardonline.com The P/n for the cast iron manifold for a 5.7l is 531051 and price is less than skidim or marineexhaustmanifolds.com. The manifold for a 351 is p/n FM-1-83 and it is a better deal as well

          Rusty and flaking is par for the course. It will be years before they are unusable. How bad are we talking here?

          To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

            x2 on eastie's post.

            All of them seem to surface rust right around the exhaust port.

              at the rear plug you can feel it loose and flakey there. Not much but enough to pull out with one finger. Maybe I should just pull them off and give it a really good flush first.

                I was convinced mine were shot .My buddy said take them off and sand blast them you may be surprised at how thick of a layer of rust will form from a thin layer of base metal.He was totally correct after blasting them they looked like new.I painted them with por15 exhaust manifold paint then a coat of por15 engine paint it has held up real well this summer. It cost ~$100 for new bolts ,fittings,gaskets and paint.Im sure glad I looked at them before I ordered new ones like I was about to do,I think it was going to be ~$450 for a new set.

                  Speaking of rusty and flaky.... is this bad? Should I replace my exhaust manifold? It's getting hot enough to melt the carpet (you can see the half moon shape in the bottom of the picture).

                    Yes ! - probably not getting good circulation there.

                      I would not wait. Mason marine in California sells GLM manifolds, or go straight through GLM. Cheaper than Ski Dim

                        I've read bad things about GLM, have they improved over the past few years? The issues I read were people having to get them machined because they weren't flat.
