Can you remove the exhaust manifold from a 72' 1600 without removing the engine?

Do you mean the muffler portion or the heat riser section under the carburetor?

I meant the heat riser below the carb. It is a dual port.

I've removed the entire intake manifold from my single port engine including the heat riser without pulling the engine. It was a pain, but it was doable. You'll have to remove your generator/alternator, the gen/alt pulley stand, and possibly some of the other components. Can't remember if I "had" to remove the fuel pump and distributor, but I did because I was replacing a bunch of stuff.

I assume it would actually be slightly easier on a DP engine because of the rubber boots on the intake.

I think it would be easier with the boots also. I have a small leak which I've heard is a common problem with older cars. Not a big deal but something that needs to be addressed. Thanks
