    Dougie, great to hear from someone in the hood!! I'm in Raleigh Hills. Let's get together and commiserate sometime soon. I'll reach out once I get her rolling again, and after my vacation...so stay tuned :-)

    Re: How to Remove the Exhaust Manifold?? (late BJ8)

    I'm about to install the exhaust manifold. I've removed the old gasket and used a razor blade to clean the engine surface. I purchased a new gasket, which has the aluminum on both sides. Do I need to use any gasket sealer, like RTV red? If so, do I put it on both surfaces? Or no need for a sealer, just install the gasket.

    Thank you.

    It goes on dry unless you like the smell and smoke from burning sealant .

    I R&R exhaust & carb manifolds 2-3 times a year over 15 years of racing and this always works. No smoke, smell etc., just a tight seal everytime.

    dougie, do you use anything on the aluminum gasket that goes between the exhaust manifold flange to exhaust pipe?

    Same as dougie, a light spray of the copper gasket spray. I use it lightly on the steel head gaskets too. Especially between aluminum heads and iron blocks. Never had a leak.

    Should have a gasket, I usually never used sealer there. Once, I used hardening Permatex paste, makes it harder to come apart.
