4-91 is 15hp IIRC, and much different than a W30, 30B, 30BXX and others.
I will need to look at the hard copy of the manual Monday to see how the manifold is removed.

Westerbeke 30 manifold

1. Remove the bolts at each end of the manifold.
2. Back off the remaining 4 inside nuts until they're almost off, using an open end wrench.
3. Lift the manifold straight up.
The inside bolt holes are slotted so the removal is really straight forward.
The engine is based on the BMC/Leyland 1.5D "B" series diesel.
