How to keep washer in place?

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by damedi, Sep 25, 2015.

  1. Installing aftermarket exhaust. Been a long day and cursing at my inability to hold copper washers in place and simultaneously insert header pipes.

    What can I use to keep the washers in place long enough to get the pipes on??

  2. Yes dear?
  3. Seriously though.

    Honey? Really? Are you messing with me GreyBMGreyBM? ;-)
  4. grease? high temp silicone? phone a friend?

  5. Bit of grease should work.

    Or pretty much any glue you might have lying around. It'll hold everything in place for assembly and should burn out without ill effects when running.

  7. Any old bearing grease, it will just burn off.

  9. What they all said, but if you have none of those then try spit....
  10. I've seen an old codger wedge it in with a finger nail. The smell is indescribable....
  11. The finger nail smelled pretty bad too.
