Question about 1989 Ford Mustang
Lower manifold rot behind thermostat housing and distributor. any quick fix ideas other than manifold replacement. 5.0 gt conv. with only 68,000 miles. two small holes at beginning of the casted numbers.
This has probably resulted in the mustache gasket getting sucked through into the lifter valley???? It has to come apart, of course. You can take a chance with JB Weld, and filing it down to restore the original shape....but I'd replace the manifold since most of the work is already done, and you don't want to do it again. Fix the thermostat housing leak to avoid this happening again. Glue the cork mustache gaskets in place with adhesive to keep them in place. Or better yet, get the rubber ones....glue them too.
