Re: Exhaust Manifold outlet threads

After carefully measuring the amount of stripped threads and the amount of good threads remaining, I found that I had almost twice as many useable threads as were stripped out. So, I decided to go the longer bolt route and was able to get enough torque to fully seat the flange against the manifold. I'm fairly confident that this is going to work, but need to get a CO monitor to be sure there are no vapor leaks. The water leaks are stopped.
Thanks for your advice. If I were to go the helix or larger bolt route, I would have to remove the manifold and who knows what that would lead to. KISS.
