my intake manifold install questions thread

okay got the manifold and a new radiator last night so its time to do the install. I gotta wait for someone to take me to schmucks so I can get a thermostat, gasket sealer, a torque wrench, vacuum lines, that kind of stuff if you see anything I missed please chime in. I've already got the gaskets and bolt kit.

I'm going to replace all the vacuum lines and since there is no EGR on this performer Im eliminating some lines, how much line do you think I should grab?

I dont have the new carb yet so Im not going to be able to start the truck until it arrives but I plan on going ahead with the install and just leaving the manifold covered but open, is that okay? or should I wait for the carb

i am not sure how those are assembled on a ford but on a pontiac i know the valley pan covers the lifters....if it were me i would take a rage then hold it under a razor blade while scraping the gasket surface clean...i would try spraying the carb cleaner on the rag first and wiping the surface...but try any way you want just as long as you don't get things into the intake holes or down in the lifter valley if applicable..
