Ahhhh more rust! Gotta love it! Come along with me in this video as I finish replacing the rusted out manifold studs in this 2004 Ford F-250 with a V-10 Engine.

    A pleasure to watch a pro, looking at a '99 RV with a Triton v-10. Rotten exhaust manifold bolts are a nagging issue with these. This convinced me that's not happening.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andre Blanchard says:

    Outstanding vid Eric once again!!! Always enjoy watching your vids, donโ€™t worry about out of focus camera – we still get the message!!! Great help for a wannabe mechanic lol. Thanks again!

    It's great

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Raucina says:

    Check out the current class action lawsuit on ford manifolds. You can join the group and get some revenge and rewards.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Ziegler says:

    Not worth the cost for SS or ARP studs?

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nunya Biz says:

    I know this is way late, but hoping you got to feeling better real quick Mrs. O.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M M2 says:

    In some parts of the video, using a head light would help light the area upon which you are working. Otherwise, it's quite a good video.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donovan Lucibello says:

    Another amazing fix, thank you for taking us along!

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Retired Chief says:

    I am not looking forward to fixing the exhaust leak and missing rear stud, drivers side of my 2009 6.8 F350. Thanks for the helpful tips Mr O.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mellow Guy says:

    On engines that routinely broke studs off (Nissan V-6s come to mind) I used to send the manifolds out and have the flanges planed flat. They'd been heat cycled enough by then they were done moving around, and upon re-assembly it seemed to end busted studs for the most part. I quit wrenching a long while back and never worked on one of those V-10s, but I wonder if planing the manifolds would cut down on those busted rear studs.

    Anyway, great pair of videos.

    Next time bring in a professional get yourself a good dentist they know how to do extractions perfectly and they enjoy it especially when I donโ€™t have to supply any gas.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars michelediane miller says:

    Idea….. Use a center punch same size as hole…. Might work

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Ferraro says:

    How about a link to the ez out

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darin Ruddock says:

    Well, here we areโ€ฆ6 years later and Iโ€™m wondering if you have seen this F250 back in the shop for manifold gaskets again. Or maybe you know if the truck even made it another 6 years?

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lee Carroll says:

    A lot to be said for down south and like of rust. If you cant center/drill well own plenty of helicoils. They work in a pinch.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Beatrice Royston says:

    What was the torque spec on the nuts?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark P says:

    I cannot imagine the bill for that job! Great work๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Winston Smith says:

    I was going to tackle this job myself. After watching these videos, I am just going to drop it off at the mechanic and give him a blank check. ๐Ÿคฃ

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Winston Smith says:

    Does Ford use inferior metal for their studs? My Tahoe had 252,000 miles on it and all of the manifold nuts backed right off. Zero broken studs.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DR Ostly says:

    what make of stud extractor is that…

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BBC 427 says:

    What brand of easy out/extractor is that?I want one just like it๐Ÿ˜Ž

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wing Walker says:

    I learned a different way to remove those broken studs on a newer GMC. You get a nut bigger than the hole and mig weld that sucker into it. If it's below flush you can fill the hole before welding the nut on. Usually the heat burns the rust out and the nut turns them right out.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Miller says:

    Just want to thank you for your CV axle GM video that helped me change mine on a '94 K1500 that was from rust country. Great videos that have lots of helpful info on dealing with rust belt vehicles.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Unamused Architect says:

    I am so glad I found your videos. Iโ€™m starting in the Uhaul mechanic dep in two weeks. And they have to extract manifold studs at least 3 times a week.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Heinl says:

    What type/brand socket extractor are you using on the manifold studs?

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars S Kaye says:

    His invoice is going to be more than that rust-bucket V10 is worth!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Bascombe says:

    I hate removing exhaust bolts no matter what it is on.
    The engineer's that design cars and trucks should have to be an auto tech for five years before they are allowed to design a car or truck to learn how not to build something.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Austin Cochran says:

    Great job and good video!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Notsodirt says:

    great video. so glad we don't use salt where i live…. so many things would be dead from crusty rusty.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gregory Bowden says:

    Excellent video, thank you!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe M says:

    Is there a point to removing the studs if they're not snapped or stripped? From my understanding a leak is caused from the gaskets deteriorating.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Garry Hatchett says:

    Ford & Nissan truck manifolds are the worst!

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randy Kudijaroff says:

    Man I love the content, but that Family content was good too! Keep it coming and be safe!

    Its a good thing SMA on Youtube wasn't around when I was in college.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Reed says:

    That being said… wanna do another one? Asking for a friend. lol

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Reed says:

    Iโ€™m from South Dakota and even with all the salt and snow the underside, suspension, and driveline on my excursion look nothing like that thing. ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Goring says:
