Resurfacing a broken (and repaired) manifold was a the solution that was
posed for cracking exhust manifolds on the 'Talon' mail list.
I think the thought was that once the manifold had been suceessfull
'warped' , it would not warp anymore. Resurface to account for the warp,
and all should be fine.
