View Full Version : Heat riser?

I got an exhaust leak at my heat riser between my manifold and pipe. The guy at Vic's told me the could pull it out and stick a bolt in it. So now I got it out, just take out all the pices and thread the hole, put a bolt in a problem solved?

Sounds reasonable to me!

Removing the valve is OK,but, it heats the carb base and without it WILL cause carb
icing,if the vehicle is stock and you wish to keep it running right ,clean the haet crossover in the manfold,thats were your exess back preesure is coming from!

[iagree] It's probably leaking where it seals to the manifold and/or y-pipe.
