I had a buddy walk out and he confirmed it was making a loud exhaust noise. I grabbed a flashlight and noticed that where the exhaust manifold connects to the exhaust pipe at the flange, it had sheared off completely. It looks pretty straight forward to replace, but I wanted to make sure there were no tricky things waiting for me.
Ok, if you were replacing it with long tube headers, or something, you'd have to deal with the exhaust sensors -but yeah, OHV engines are pretty easy to work on, especially with the exhaust.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
