Geno Tool Manifold SpreaderI have been a Chevrolet mechanic for 26 years. Ever since GM came out with the manifold that goes on their 305, 350 and 400 cu. in. engines on Chevy and GM vehicles, it has been virtually impossible to remove and re-install the same exhaust manifold back on the engine because of warping. The warping problem is particularly bad on 1988 and 89 GM pickups. Usually, we have had to install a new manifold. My new "Geno Tool" manifold spreader makes it possible to remove the bolts from manifolds without ruining the threads in the head and reinstalling the manifold when you're done working on the engine. One spreader goes between each arm of the manifold. This tool saved me so much time and expense, I started making them for sale. A set of spreaders sells for $34.95 ($2 shipping).
