    Exhaust Manifold Water Line

    How do you remove the exhuast manifold inlet water line? Mine has the oetiker clamp on it, and I can not seem to get anything to it.

    A small flat head screw driver in the open loop. just keep wiggling it until it busts open. Then apply Neosporin to your knuckles. That clamp is a PITA.

    a pair of side cutter pliers. get your hand in there (use a little mirror if you need to. I find them in my wifes purse.. ) and just cut and rip that sucker off. they are pretty flimsy, should not take much. Then replace with a normal worm drive clamp.

    Thanks, I will give it a try. I have already busted up all my knuckles on installing the intercooler blockoff.

    Also where are you finding the brass fitting for the intercooler? I have tried by Lowes, Homedepot, and Ace Hardware, none have the size I am looking for 3/4" hose to 1/2" NPT.
