Daf 33 : The exhaust manifolds are both well and truly stuck inside the heads. I would imagine its a fairly common thing for a 33 thats not been used for some years. Both the aluminium and steel have corroded and stuck together and I cannot separate them. Soaked in releasing fluid for days, no luck. Tried heating, but didnt want to heat too much in case of damage. Again, no luck. Has anyone else come across this, and had success in separating them? If so, how did you do it? I need to replace both as they are damaged at the outlet end, the flanges and at least an inch of pipe are broken off and the hot spot pipe is missing.
