Exhaust leak

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by Kraven, Mar 3, 2006.

  1. Since i have had my new muffler on i have noticed a small exhaust leak where the muffler bolts to the headers,
    I've decided to do something about it this week so does anyone know how to seal this up?, I looked at autobarn and they have some exhaust putty stuff but i'm not sure if this is the best option.

    Also the old gasket will not fit on this muffler .


  2. one word... gaff.

    will fix anything.
  3. I'd say make a custum gasket for it. :wink:

    Bring it to coffee tonight so we can all look at it and argue about the best course of action. :blah: :grin:
  4. Just rock up to any exhaust place and they should have off cuts of exhaust gasket lying around that they could probably give you.
  5. I think the prouct is called ceramiseal or maniseal. In a white tube with red writing. A ceramic paste that is water based(easy clean up). Take teh joint apart, apply ceramiseal and put joint back together. Top stuff.

    Regards, Andrew.
  6. Thanks everyone, I might take vic's advice and head down to the local exhaust shop and see it they can give me/sell me a small piece of gasket material and just cut that to size.
