SOHC thermostat housing replacement?

Anyone done it? After I get my slave and clutch sorted I gotta tackle this. It is leaking bad. Seems to pool up between the heads, burn off and or leak down the block. By looking at it, it seems I have to take the intake manifold off.

You dont have to take the manifold off, you can squeeze it out from under the throttle body. Just be careful not to damage the inner flange of the housing since its all plastic.
