Am I correct in assuming that the exhaust manifold studs on my '58 Savoy 318 go into water jackets like on other Mopars I have worked on?

Thanks Chuck. I figured as much. I was thinking about that in case one of the nuts is frozen and the whole stud comes out. I don't need antifreeze all over the floor. Been there, done that.

You what is really annoying, is when you get headers from HotHeads and use the supplied bolts to bolt them on because there is no clearance for studs and nuts. You do this while assembling the engine on the stand before you put it in the car. Then months later you put it in the engine bay and get everything working and discover you have a small leak. You're laying under the car when you are suddenly reminded about how those bolts go into the water jacket...

Not that that has ever happened to me... it was someone I knew... really.

A little thread sealer would go a long way.

Just discovered that one of the manifold studs is snapped off or missing. The car has made noise since my son and I picked it up a few years ago. Now that I got it out of storage I figured it was time to fix the exhaust. The broken stud is one on the bottom of the manifold, so it isn't seen from the top of the engine. I ran my fingers across the bottom row of studs and found one missing. I'm sure I will find that it is broken off. There is one new exhaust manifold gasket in the trunk. I bet a previous owner was going to replace it, broke a stud and stopped.

I broke one off in mine last year. Manifold was off as I had ro drill the studs to the exhaust. One or two of the studs came out with the nuts but mostly the nuts came off. So I thought about replacing them with new studs and went about locking 2 nuts together to take the studs out. I thought it was undoing, it was a little stiff then seemed to get easier then it just sheared off.. How annoying! Then tried drilling that out and just as the drill broke though the other end of the stud that snapped off too. As I lay under the car cursing what I had done, a little trickle of water landed on my head to cool me down..... Not! Ended up welding the end of the broken stud with broken bit of drill up and didn't try changing ant more studs!

If it can go wrong it will. That's what I "love" about working on old cars.

Five years later, this s a helpful thread.  I noticed a leak near the front of my exhaust manifold in the '58 Firedome.  I bought a new gasket at NAPA.  I read my shop manual about removing the manifold.  As soon as a remove a bolt, a riverlet of antifreez is flooding my garage floor!  The manual didn't mention that!  Wondering if I had a serious problem on my hands, I searched the forums and found this thread.  That put my mind at ease!  I probably lost about a gallon and a half of antifreeze.

a lot of holes go into water or oil.
