    Default machine shop

    anyone ever taken their cast iron exhaust manifolds and risers to a machine shop here in Anch. to have the mating surfaces milled?

    took mine off to paint them and noticed the gasket had failed and need the surfaces cleaned up.
    thanks,Tony F.

    A wire wheel and half round ******* file would do the trick. It worked for me last spring.

    When I had my old boat I just carefully flat filed them.

    flat filed them last night and dropped them off today at Superior machine for sandblasting and he will check the surfaces but thought they were looking good.
    thank you for the replies.
