Assembling The Intake Manifolds

Step 1

Push the Intake Manifolds into the Intake Bottoms.

I noticed each Intake Bottom had a little more material on one end than the other. These had to match on both sides:

Step 2

Fix the parts together with six (6) AP screws:

To keep things aligned nicely, I fitted this on the Engine Top from the previous issue before screwing these down. The extra material end of the Intake Bottoms should be opposite the Water Pump, as shown:

Step 3a

Affix the Right Air Intake to this assembly with two (2) AP screws. The groove and curved section on this piece indicate the correct part:

Step 3b

Turn the assembly around and affix the Left Air Intake with two (2) more AP screws:

Fitting The Manifolds

Step 1

Insert this assembly into the Engine Top, aligning all of the holes.

I made sure that the ends of the air intakes with the holes faces the Water Pump end:

Step 2

Flip it over again and insert six (6) AP screws in the holes to secure the pieces together:

Although quite fiddly with some wobbly parts, this issue was pretty quick and easy.
