When you start the job soak everything down with a penetrating oil do it with it warm and let it sit until it is cold. Expect every stud to break, and possibly manifold bolts to break. If you do not want to do the job of drilling out the broken pieces, and bleeding do not start it. You will need access to another vehicle to get parts, tools and stitches. Just a thought!

I worked mostly on Diesel Class eights and "CAT" taught me how to do it. Many a gas manifold bolt have broken off and Ford clutch mount brackets. Some you could just put on a blob of weld and then sticking the electrode on there, for a minute, then let it cool and tacking on a piece then letting it cool and it would come out. The bad thing about welding is once you do drilling is very difficult after.

I agree with John, I also soak all the components before cleaning them and starting the overhaul procedure. Replacing extensively damaged parts and making a note of all what has gone in till the rebiuld is complete. I also refer to online manuas and instructions which give illustrated procedures on working with different vehicles. This gives some good info, the link.
