Today, the exhaust manifold (or what is left of it) was removed. So now we wait and hope that the new one will arrive in the mail tomorrow.
The guys here at Best Way Truck Repair have been really great to us. They even allowed us to sit at our dinette in the Travco and work on our computers while they wrenched off the broken manifold. The PB Blaster fumes did push us outside, but its the thought that counts!
Along with a new exhaust manifold, we'll be getting a custom built gas tank. The old one was just too rusted inside. The new tank will be a little larger (5 gallons more capacity) than the old one.
