    Stuck intake manifold

    Good evening folks

    I'm having problems removing the intake manifold on my '65 289. All bolts removed, jus seems to be stuck fast.

    Tried the putty knife trick, prying, etc....it's just not shifting.

    Does anyone have any tricks to get stuck intakes removed?

    First be sure all the bolts are out, there are 12 of them. Try and get a pry bar between the engine and the underside of the thermostat housing. Put a bit of thin wood between the pry bar and engine and the bar and thermostat housing. You should easily get enough purchase to dislodge it.

        Finally shifted it, thanks gents. It was on there good. Had to use my longest pry bar and almost hang off it before it popped.
