    at that point i would have put some shorty headers on it

    you never going to find bolt studs for heat shield except from dealer. I know I looked it up. cost 4 time they worth.

    Your credibility goes up when you tell the truth about what you're doing and talk about mistakes. Kudos. Really good video and audio.

    You look tired but keep the great job you do buddy I enjoy what you do

    Dodge/ram should do the right thing& issue a factory recall for this issue. My’05 ram1500 has the same issue, but the repair cost is apps $800.I think Chrysler knows there’s a problem with their design. They should step up for their customers!

    Eric if you look close at the manifold gasket bolt holes you will see one that is star shaped this is to loosely install a bolt and hold the gasket in place there is a corresponding slot on the manifold to slide over the bolt

    I love my Hemi. That's all. lol

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! David Blood says:

    Excellent video. Thank you!

    I’m in the middle of this project now on a 2017 ram hemi yeah it’s a bit tricky navigating with the bolts getting them out cleaning everything up putting everything back in I just finished up the passenger side tomorrow Starts to driver side lucky enough the two back bolts were sticking out a half inch give me something to grab onto I’ve used your method with the meg welder works great on other projects and thanks for your videos worked out great

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Delorme says:

    Ok so how do you stop this from happening again. I've fixed it twice already

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Corey McDowell says:

    Thanks for the video it help out and save money too. And on the driver side putting the gasket in first is a lot easier…..

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Harjot Minhas says:

    Good stuff man, would love to see a video of cam and lifter replacement on this 5.7 2500 HD.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin G says:

    Hi Eric, one of the manifold gasket holes has tiny tabs to screw a bolt thru a couple turns and mount to block. This hole in gasket with tiny tabs is inline with the manifold hole that is a slotted hole so you can slide the manifold down with gasket in place. Love the vids and your accolades for the Mrs.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Thompson says:

    All in all, how many hours were involved for both part 1 and 2, and what was the cost of all the new hardware?

    Curious because I've been looking left right and center, and ALOT of ppl claim the only way to PERMANENTLY fix this is going to a set of headers…Apparently it's an engineering problem right from Dodge that doesnt have a proper fix,but also doesnt have a TSB bulletin…

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Manning says:

    i am getting ready to do my 04 ram 20000 miles not Shure if manifolds are good but i am thinking about doing headers because i have 2 broke bolts and i have to pull them what do you think about headers

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Manning says:

    try a head cam

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Diego541 says:

    I love your attitude and your attention to detail! I have the same problem with my 2015 Ram 1500. Just subbed

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 6string says:

    mine needs this bad

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bufftileguy1 says:

    I have this same truck/issue. Great video and thanks! Love all your videos.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raymond Melodino jr. says:

    Nice!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars V H says:

    Anyone know the part number on the down pipe nuts and bolts?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan McGee says:

    Always good to double check here before diving in on a task like this for us DIY'ers … in my case I had 2 broken studs and 1 bolt snapped below the level of the head (1st time using a mig welder for this .. got it on the 4th sacrificial nut). I also had one manifold bolt that was so loose I was able to remove it without any heating / tools …. weird!! ….. Keep it up!!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bobby Smith says:

    When welding the nuts on the studs is it best to disconnect the battery sorry not much of a welder

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SoylentGreenisPeople says:

    Great video but 8 commercials in a 24 minute video? Come on, youtube.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Dennis says:

    You make it look too easy.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Black Ink says:

    Thanks for teaching me this I appreciate you

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JT Hodges says:

    👍👍👍👍

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars robert boykin says:

    When replacing L/H manifold with a new one, DON'T FORGET to drill & tap a new hole for the DIP STICK TUBE, as I did.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars robert boykin says:

    Are they true?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars robert boykin says:

    Before cleaning heads off, I always crammed toilet paper in ports to keep valve & seats clean. Nothing like an errant piece of wire from the spinning brush to get betwixt your piston & cylinder wall.

    DlD My 07 and welded Frankln B0LTS T0 REM0VE THE BR0KEN BlTS (4!) THANKS!!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Phillips says:

    I got to tackle my 2000 4.7 Dakota exhaust manifold gaskets in bolts. This helps thank you

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrKingedzx14 says:

    Hey bro where are you located? Please..

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BIG TD says:

    Ha,ha

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BIG TD says:

    Hey switch the bolts around !

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BIG TD says:

    Elmer's Glue to stick the gasket on the glue will melt when the motor gets hot makes it easier

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Stuart Stuart says:

    From what i’ve read, the studs break because the cast iron manifold and aluminum head expand at different rates. I assume the studs will break again sometime in the future, unless the studs are made differently from the originals.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Philip Johnson says:

    Eric thank you man for being the great Eric you are bro. Out standing workmanship and quality you make. A wonderful teacher bro God bless

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian S says:

    Thx good job ! I do like the weld trick you showed , nice little trick ! I did exhaust for a bunch of years but never did that one . This does help me for the task I have ahead of me . Cheers I buy you a beer or two !!!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Slacin' Ace says:

    so watching these, i would trust this shop to work on my stuff. ive always been a do it myself guy though, does anyone know if all shops are similiar in care like this?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bernhard85 says:

    i used a torque wrench on mine with the inner fender liner out with no issue its wide open but mine is a 2003 5.7 with torsion bars instead of the big coil spring buckets in the way haha , my other truck is 2004 5.9 cummins and its so easy to work on, its by far my favorite engine to work on without a doubt

    Wv coal miners approve of this 📹

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Travis Roth says:

    Excellent video!

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike says:

    I was fooling around with a broken bolt on my 18, laying around the driveway. What a mess of dirt in the eyes lol. Passenger side only, have some warranty left for the dealer to repair the other side. Just have to do some revs and heat cycles first. This isn't a job I'd enjoy attempting myself. Ever install short tube headers to permanently fix this problem for your customers?

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keith Kramarz says:

    Awesome job! Where you located? I have the same exact truck with same exact issue and everyone wants a fortune to repair it. I could do it myself if I had a lift and a torch.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Moe Ouellette says:

    i was told the bolts with the white dots go in the rear position 7,8 NOT the front as you did,They are upgraded stainless steel bolts.

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Behind Enemy Lines says:

    Part number for the encased nuts and bolts?
