      I'd say that's probably a new one here on the Clinic. Been a member 11 years, and don't recall that one before. The manifolds are a bit delicate, as they sure do dry rot and crack... but, the inside flaking? I guess they should all be PORTED!!! Problem solved! LOL

        Sounds like several intervals of excessive heat. As mentioned, not a common thing we hear about hear. 6 years here most every day and never encountered it before.

          I read your other post about the issue. As long as the rest of the manifold is in good condition just remove that rubber as you said. I also say now is the time to port the manifold and flatten the flanges. Get a tube of Hylomar to put on the flanges along with the orings to reseal when you reinstall.

            Thanks for your help guys.
            I removed all the crispy rubber, feathered the good rubber too the metal with a dremel.
            Did the porting and cleaned everything up with emery cloth.
            Ready to install.

              Be sure to eyeball the inside of the manifold against a bright light and double check that no cracks made it all the way through. My 99's manifold cracked through in 2014...
