Can I also use adhesive and adhere to be manifold surface first and then bolt on manifold or is it better to attach gasket to engine surface first?

You can attach the gasket to either the engine or manifold.

Thread was entitled "Bad Gas" which was the topic for 4 posts. The following 22 posts were about Manifolds and Risers.

I've split the posts to be topic specific.

Put on new manifolds and riser elbows. Pretty straight forward and no issues. Ran boat a few minutes and left riser still running warmer to touch than right. Although I know the temp gauge is not best indicator, running at normal temp. Have not used a gun on riser yet. Just wondering if it is possible that one side might run warmer naturally. Obviously it's not an obstruction issue given everything is brand new.

Any thoughts?

Not uncommon for one side to be hotter than the other. I think it is due to the distribution of the t-stat housing not being equal.

So nothing that I should be concerned about?
