Exhaust header pipe removal Empty
PostSubject: Exhaust header pipe removal   Exhaust header pipe removal Icon_minitime1Thu Apr 11, 2024 1:47 am

I've discovered a slight blow at the LH exhaust header pipe, so I plan to remove both pipes and replace the header gaskets.
First time doing this job. My question is, can I re-use the two gaskets that are down at the collector pipe (2 into 1) or should these also be replaced?

I have some new solid brass nuts and lock washers for the header pipe re-assembly  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Thanks for any advice offered!

As long as the clamps haven't been over-torqued you can re-use them if they retain their integrity, they usually do.

The trick with the manifold to head gaskets is to not over tighten the nuts and then re-torque them a couple of times after a few heat cycles.

OK, thanks for the information Pete. I don't think the exhaust has ever been disturbed from new, except the original end can being replaced for a Termi. I'm assuming everything else is still as it were from the factory.
