Changing the intake gasket this weekend

Anyone have a cut sheet of the intake and what the torque specs are for a 454?

I am planning on taking the blower and intake off as one unit, anyone see any issues with this?

The only issue is placing is back on precisely as is needed to make the end seals set up correct. I would remove the blower myself, its not that hard.

3/8-16 torque specs into cast iron are 35ft-lbs torque

3/8-16 torque specs into aluminum are 25ft-lbs torque.

Use aviation sealer on the threads with either.
