Exhaust manifold bolts
Headed to see mr hagg to fix broken exhaust bolt.My question is should I use cummins bolts or some type of better aftermarket bolts.The reason I am asking this is motor was inframed exactly 2 years ago and about 170000 miles .Exhaust temps never go above 500 degree according to installed guage.I am assuming they were tourqed correctly when done by mr hagg .Why would one break in this short time and what can be done to prevent this in the future.

RE: Exhaust manifold bolts
They usually break because the manifold expands and adds shear pressure to the bolts on #2 & #5. The solution is to drill out the holes in the manifold on those two cylinders - I can't remember what size. If it broke a bolt on a different cylinder then it may just be a case of corrosion getting to them.

RE: Exhaust manifold bolts
It has the sleeves around the bolts... right? That’s supposed to be for absorbing expansion. Maybe the sleeves are work hardened and not allowing for expansion anymore.

After some hunting I found it - TSB120263

Drill the holes on #2 & #5 to 13.5mm or 17/32.

RE: Exhaust manifold bolts
Bolts are probably fine stock. But ARP makes the best bolts on the planet. Never had one fail yet.
