if its a stock cast iron manifold get a buddy to help you lower it into place cuz they're one heavy sombitch. Nothing too difficult you should be able to keep the throttle body attached to the manifold so you dont have to replace that gasket, just unhook your fuel lines. distibutor doesnt have to come out so thats a plus. just take your time and clean everything really good so you dont have to redo it in a month. Good luck

I just had to do one if you want to keep it from leaking get a felpro kit and a mopar kit use the mopar end seals and the steel gasket for the plate on the bottom of the intake and use the felpro side gaskets. Seems like a waste of cash but the felpro kit comes with cork end seals that leak like a bitch the mopar kit is rubber. and for some reason the mopar side gaskets leak after 200miles. Its not really a fun job to do so its a good way to make sure you only have to do it once. Also get new bolts for the base plate on the intake if you dont replace them the rattle out and fall in the motor.
