    Make sure that you got no more bolts holding it on and if try giving it a few whacks will a dead blow hammer, be carful not to break or crack the manifolds if you plan on keeping the old ones and reusing them.

    That is very werid that they will not come off, Have you tired heating them up with a torch. Also this is a shot in the dark but make sure no one has tried to weld or braze the manifold to the block. Send me your address and I will give ya a hand tomarrow if ya want.
