manifold install

Ok I have read through a few of the forums, but I still have a couple of quick questions. I have a 350, and I am changing out the intake(with a used one no instructions). I will be using permetex instead of the end seals.

I am being told to put permetex around the holes the water runs through. I am sure I can tell which ones they are by the corrosion in them, but does anyone know which ones they are?

Second question... Should I just run a bead of permetex around those hole?

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

The water ports are the ones at each corner (4) of the intake. I usually use a blue silicone on these...has never failed me yet.

I would not use anything on those ports, all that is needed is a quality gasket. GM never used anything on them. The silicone will work great as the end gasket however. Let it sit for a while after you lay a bead down. You want it to start to set up before you place the intake on.

Glad to hear that. Did you change much on the drawing?

Yes, the drawing really helped. The hardest part was setting up the 3 wire alt. After looking at a couple ways to hook them up the easiest seemed to be running the excitor wire to both tabs (the 1 plug) and then basically hooking it up as a one wire. I have a friend who has been running this setup for many years now.

I agree except for age begets imperfections. I have found that a very thin layer of blue around the water ports keeps the unlikely from happening.

Must remember to torque the bolts in even increments also.
