@#$%!!! So I now know why I keep killing exhaust gaskets...

So, this part is NOT the head, is it? There looks like a metal line running from each side up, and I think it's the AIS system when the engine is REALLY cold, right?
Can I just get a new right side one of these, and not have to worry about heli-coiling it?
Around here, I'm sure I could find a soob of EA81 origin to steal this part from.
PS: anybody else run into this problem?

The stud is actually tapped into the thread, and everything else just bolts straight to the head.
Looks like you might have to heli-coil anyways.

It's only ever on for like, literally, a minute.

It was my dad's suggestion, but I agreed with the idea. I also thought that bolts would be better. My dad said it's not worth trying to get the length exact so you have all the threads but don't bottom out. He also said with studs you have a better chance of removing them once they get rusted again, because there is both a stud and a nut that could possibly break loose before stripping out. Good point I think.
The adapter plate with the line coming out of it at the exhaust manifold leads to the anti-backfire valve (reed valve). My 83 has only one on the driver side, but my 84 had one on each side. The 84 never backfired, but the 83 rarely does.
If this ever goes out on you it can be rebuilt with the reed valve kit available at baxters and such. FYI

hey, the threads on jims turbo motor actually held enough torque for the cross- pipe.
