I need to see a pic of the 5/16"-18 bolts used to bolt the exhaust manifold onto a Case with a Kohler. I really just need to see the head/washer arrangement to make sure I am taking the right approach to use allen head bolts with lock washers. I opened the manual and it said hex head, but I don't think those will fit and have room for a socket. Anyway, plan to bolt that on tomorrow when I get the right gasket and another bolt (only had one of the allen head bolts). I spent today cutting the pipe exhaust off of the thing. The last guy used a schedule 80 short nipple into the block, and boy was that a chore to relief cut with a sawsall and beat out on a 14" pipe wrench and hammer!! Who lets these half wits work on tractors?? lol

14hp Kohler from a MF14 Massey uses Allen bolt with washer.

Did you get your manifold back on?But why the need for socket? Not trying to be be smart a---- just wondering.

I opted against socket and wanted to comfirm allen head bolts. I have not got it bolted on. Tomorrow I plan to do so though.
