Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Can't see or get to top bolt on starter or intake manifold bracket looking under motor.
You may have to use a series of extension bars to get to a point where you can use a ratchet or t.bar. probably up past the engine mount somewhere.

No. Removal of the intake manifold is not an attractive option.
...That will cost you more time and money in the long run.
You will need to replace the intake manifold gasket, and several others.

the long bolts go to the inside or in the holes closest to the center of motor and the short ones go to the outside of the intake or closest to the valve covers

There is a heater core bypass pipe that runs from the block (under the manifold) to the bacl of theengine where you will see a flat rectangular "sheet metal" thing with a pipe coming out of it. The a rubber hose connects. You need to pull the top air plenums and intake to get to it. The p[ipe flange bolts to the block with silicone rtv as a sealant.
