I have a 1985...

I have a 1985 International with a DT466 diesel engine. I suspect I have a cracked exhaust manifold. I only drive this old girl for 40 minutes a night. Can I do much damage if I do not do the repair?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the engine? And when was it last serviced?

The engine was rebuilt 20 years ago and it was serviced two months ago.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model of your car?

This is an International five ton body job

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

This has just happened and I am waiting for a couple of quotes to have the work done

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It seems to run fine just a bit of fumeage in the cab but not that noticeable
