|BigRed03||spray from carb cleaner and see. the vac lines are hard and can crack where you cant see it visually|

|budawe||I had to remove intake to change the starter and am getting code 171, too lean, I have looked at the boots and hoses and can't find anything that would cause a vacuum leak. Does anyone have any clues?|

|CFM Focus||Thanks for the update! Glad you were able to fix it.|

The 'ear' that should have had a bolt holding down the mani was broken. Bolt is long gone, about 1/4 inch gap from the ear to the block.
Being rather Bohemian, and quite clever I found a bolt with the right thread and a 1/8" x 3/4" x 2" double-slotted steel plate (I don't throw 'good' stuff away!)
I cut one end open to fit either side of the reinforcement up on the broken ear, loosened one side of the mani boot screws for some 'give' and torqued down the new Mickey-Mouse fix.
How'd THAT thing break? Who knows, I wasn't that rough... Oh, well...

|SVTF 03||Just did this last night. It's not too hard. The support is right under the #3 intake runner (3rd one from the drivers side). And you can definitely see it from the underside of the car.|

|BigRed03||Unfortunately that image doesnt show it. if 9424A was turned 180 degrees youd see the slot to slide around the stud end coming off of the block.|

BUT, the image of the two intake mani parts (above) should have something to do with this hidden support, one would think, so

|BigRed03||nope. its actually coming of the block itself. its really ony able to be seen from below or if the IM is taken out.|
