 The passenger side exhaust manifold on my 265 V8 is leaking badly around 
 appears to be a 1" X 3" sheet metal cover on the side of the manifold facing 
 the valve cover.  Do I need to pull the manifold to repair this?  Does 
 know why there is a covered port there?  I cannot imagine any reason for it.

   Hey Dennis, 

  I wonder if the one of the previous owners tried to seal a crack this way?  
I happen to have a '55 265 in my Dads shop, it's from a car though...anyway, 
i'll take a look at it tomorrow and see if it has what you describe.

oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
