Worked on the Fiat last night. Almost ready to pull the head off. Biggest problem I see right now is getting the exhaust separated from the manifold. The intake and exhaust are on the same side so it's really cramped to be able to remove the manifolds and the manual says to separate the manifolds after removing the head. I can't get a wrench or socket on and be able to turn it. Any suggestions?

The heater core seems to be bypassed. The hoses are atleast routed differently than stock. I also broke the overflow tank spigot off the top of the radiator. I already looked for a replacement radiator and couldn't find one. Especially one with the transmission cooler ports on the bottom. Hopefully the rest of the radiator is fine and I can just repair that barbed piece.
