    Question Header Installation

    This is a general tech question, but I'm posting it here as this is the current project for my '05 MGM. When I get the exhaust manifolds off; can I use brake cleaner and a flapper wheel to clean the exhaust port flange?

    I've gotten to where I used a bristle disc to clean just about every surface where a gasket once was. The white colored ones are good for everything from aluminum to cast iron. https://www.amazon.com/3M-18733-Rolo...s%2C133&sr=8-9

    I would second a bristle disc. I wouldn’t want to use anything more abrasive on an aluminum head.
