Exhaust Manifold

These engines do not come from the factory with locknuts on the studs used to attach the exhaust manifold to the cylinder head.  In addition, the existing nuts are not installed with threadlock.

Pilots must be certain to remove and then reinstall the nuts with threadlock or they will loosen.

Loose nuts wil cause the manifold to leak air and drip oil.  The engine may also run too lean and overheat.
