Unhappy More Woe

Help is needed. Today I needed to get the Lamba sensor out as old one is broken. So put socket on and with some force it started to undo. So far so good but when I removed said sensor all the threads in the manifold were attached. This is not good so I now need a 4 stud manifold asap. Has anyone got one that they no longer need and wish to sell?

I could be wrong, but I thought you could get at them with an angle drill? Was sure thats what Stan did with mine.

Hi,

I have the manifold off the engine still, I have put everything else back and was thinking this would be a simple job. I should have known better as this car has fought all the way so far. Nothing has been simple. I will take it to my local machine shop on Monday. Thanks for the replies.
