You guys are a riot.  Thanks
 
OK  between the rain storms. . .
 
I managed to get the exhaust manifold off and retorque the hed bolts.  I added a pound to the torque wrench.  Apparently I didn't miss any ot the outer ones, but they needed to be retightened anyway apparently.  They weren't loose, but they took a 1/2 a turn until it clicked again.
 
I started the car and there was a slight improvement.  Tomorrow I'll pull the valve cover and hit the upper ones again and see what happens.
 
You don't think I missed the long one do you?

Well it's all over boys and girls.
 
I retorqued the heads and while the leakage subsided a bit, it's still not fixed.
 
I think I am going to take my money out of the car and just scrap it.
