I have a 1969 Mach 1 390 with a exhaust manifold leak on the drivers siide. I'm not sure yet if it is the manifold or (gasket no sure it even has one). I was wondering if it could be repaired if so how ? Also if it has to replaced the manifold does anyone know the steps on how to do such a replacement ? Thanks for any and all input.

Ford engines were not equipped with exhaust manifold gaskets from the factory.

You'll have to detach the LH motor mount and raise the engine somewhat to have any hope of removing the manifold with the engine installed. You sure it's not a leaky donut? That'd be easier to fix.
