    When you are removing the stock exhaust manifold you will need either a 12mm (preferably 12 point) 1/4 drive flex socket to remove the lower center pipe flange bolt.
    If you don't have one you can grind down a 12mm 12 point wrench to fit see pics

    Great idea, as it is hard to get to. I removed secondary clutch, slid my hand under jackshaft, and put wrench from underneath.

    nobody wants me wrenching on their sled..trust me on that...the only tools this guy uses is a 10" French knife and a potato peeler..I leave such a complicated piece of machinery to those who know what their doing and I really appreciate what you guys are doing on this site and to your mechanical talents...I do learn allot here.
