Well now it is wrapped the way you want it wrapped, but maybe it was that way before.

I don't remember exactly, cause it was 6 years ago, but I think the #2 and #3 spark plug wires were switched at some point. It ran okay and even drove a little, but it only had %60 of it's normal power... :lol:

Anyway, back to the story:

The clutch was toast when I got the car .... so the plan was a quick engine bay paint job, new clutch, and it'd be back on the road in a month.

this was in March 2011:

Paint stripper doesn't do much to undercoating .... so most of this was removed with grinder pads:

I made some plates, and gave those 13" minilites to my friend who welded all the holes in the bay ... cause I didn't have a welder yet:

I have a 710 wagon still mostly stock. I am trying to replace my exhaust manifold and need to keep the stock intake that has a new Weber 32/36 carb.

Would anyone know how to separate the intake from the exhaust? Also do you still have the original seats from this wagon?

I never got the stock front seats ... you have to loosen the bolts/nuts that hold the intake and exhaust ... and you need to take off the intake manifold to change the gasket anyway, so you might as well take it off and buy a new intake/exhaust gasket (it's one gasket for both manifolds)
