Hi Everyone, My transmission has been pulled and sent out to get the circlip installed (and a taller 5th gear). While I have the downtime I am assembling the parts to "refresh " everything while I'm at it. (BING rebuild, fresh rubber bits here and there, and fresh rubber bellows on the shaft etc.) When I pulled the headers,collector, and single silencer I noticed that as I carefully twisted them off a bunch of dried up gunk feel out where the various exhaust components were fitted togather. (Again I am the original owner and the exhaust has never been removed) I couldn't determine if the pieces were the remnants of exhaust cement or the remnants of a soft gasket. I looked up on the Max Fiche (thanks Adam) and saw there were part numbers for the description of "gasket" between the different connections. I ordered them. What arrived were Stainless Steel tubes with a slit along one side looking something like a napkin ring???? Okaaaayyyy???? Soooo....whats the story here? How are these installed? Do I use a semi hardening hi temp exhaust putty/cement between the connections to make them exhaust tight before securing the Stainless Steel clamps? Many Thanks for any and all replies.
