I found myself with a little time on my hands and decided to keep myself busy and dig into a few issues with my Binder. I bought this 68 last year and i'm trying to work the bugs out. This weeks project is freeze plugs, oil change and cleaning up the exhaust. Exhaust Passenger Side: I did get everything apart up to the manifolds that is the good thing. The passenger side had wire wrapped around the bolts and the heat riser. After getting it apart I found a donut, a heat riser that had been split in half and welded (no gasket), and a thick exhaust pipe mounting flange that had the ears broken off (hole spread was also not correct), and the down pipe is cracked at the flange and was not tight in the rest of the exhaust. The exhaust manifold face feels smooth until you get out to the outer ears. Exhaust Driver Side: Dot as bad, I will have to replace the bolts (everything I took off to be safe) , the manifold although it was tight, does not look as good or feel as good as the passenger side. Resolution Passenger side? I"m looking for the path of least resistance, but i'm not sure what do do with the passenger side. I figure, I need a heat riser, heat riser gasket, exhaust pipe mounting flange, mounting bolts and see if I can find the down pipe somewhere on the shelf? Resolution Driver side? New bolts, the exhaust mounting flange is bent but its on the welded side with no way to get it off. The truck only really made any noise on the passenger side, this side was tight. Here are some pictures, I still need to run it all the way out the back. This is just how it came and what I have to work with. I just want to know if i'm missing anything or should I take the first part of it and have somebody make me a new one?
