Richard,i suspect your exhaust gaskets between the head and the mainfold have rusted away,a common problem once the engine gets some miles/years on it.
Another thing it could be is broken or cracked exhaust manifolds.

Either way,the manifolds have to come off for the repair,and if the maniflds are not cracked they need to be re-surfaced on the gasket surface.
Some machine shops cannot re-surface them,and you may have to get new ones.

The last new one I bought was $300+,and you have two of them.
Is this something you can do yourself?
Its a tough job,awkward spots to get to and long arms needed,and plenty of patience needed.

If your going to do it yourself,i have more tips for you.
