Yeah, it's since been rectified, just needed a little twist, and a shot from the heat gun.

Looks nice. Big improvement over the old set-up. Im worried about the risers as well. I tossed a motor in my AT 20 hrs after I bought it from a leaking gasket. Let us know how the coating holds up.

BTW- Thanks for the kind words.

Yeah, unfortunately the old factory merc manifolds aren't worth the material they are cast from, however this project has snowballed from a new interior to nearly a full restoration. The motor was something I couldn't overlook, since I can pretty much build an engine in my sleep. I've only just started to shop for manifolds, once everything is reassembled and the season tapers off, maybe a reasonbly priced set of Gil, Imco, or Hardin manifolds will hit the classifieds.

Before I spend $1800+ on a set of manifolds, I'll break out the TIG and the tubing bender and make my own.
