I have read where some members use EGR gaskets from automobiles, because they are metal. You might also want to check the "face" of the muffler, with a strait edge. Mine was terrible I had to grind it smooth. I agree with Kidd go out an buy a roll of gasket material and hi temp RTV, youll need it.....

Napa has exuast gasket making gasket. I tried the black regular gasket material and it blew out. But on the otherhand I did wreck and bed the exaust that could have done it insted. The High temp RTV I have used and it works for sure. Just do not over thighten or use too much just a pretty thin coat about width of dime. Then tighten it up pretty snug then after it dries another 1/8 turn.

Thanks for all the help

I used RTV Copper and the old gasket so far so good, gasket making material is very hard to find here, The guys in the parts store are less than helpfully.

I will pick some up on my next shoping trip in the states

Once again thanks for all the help Guys!:
