    I got it put in and running well again, when I took it off I found out the guys I had working on the engine put the wrong gaskets between the heads and manifolds???? It blew the gasket out on the other side also. I don't think the gaskets caused the crack but I'm sure the mechanic who was working on it didn't know what he was doing

    If you don't know what's wrong with this picture, the heads and exhaust have square ports not round.

    i always use the factory type gaskets for manifol
    and header gaskets when i use headers, back in the day
    before i would install the manifolds i used to paint the gasket
    surface several times let it dry then install exaust manifold
    without gaskets and never had one leak.

    What?! There was just paint sealing the exhaust manifold/header to the head? Just looking for clarification, cuz I never heard of this. Did you use high temp paint?

    a shop i worked at early in my career, when we would remove an exaust
    manifold and we would paint the mating surface of the manifold several
    times with cheap black paint let it dry then install the manifold on the
    head, the paint will seal between the two surfaces when warmed up after
    engine is running. the late 60s and early 70 chevy small blocks never had
    gaskets between the exaust man and the head. worked very well.

    Cool

    I still do not run gaskets on my stock cast iron exhaust manifolds.
    It never hurts to re tighten the manifolds after the engine has been ran for a while...
    Its a "van thing". A life style you have to live to understand!!!!

    I wonder if they cracked the manifold when they bolted it back on, not tightening each bolt gradually in combo with the wrong gasket. At the ends there isn't much gasket material even when it was new.
