HiPo Exhaust Manifolds

Just a heads-up for anyone thinking of installing reproduction '65-'67 HiPo exhaust manifolds.

Be sure to file or grind down the casting seams on at least numbers 5 and 6, but it may be a good idea to do all of them. The seams prohibit the use of a spark plug socket, which makes installing the plugs somewhat difficult!

I looked it up on-line (afterwards) and found out it's a common problem.
