How do I repair subject leak? I replaced the POS gaskets that came with the
Y-pipe with the Flowtech dead-soft aluminum gaskets and cranked them down
pretty good. But I still have a leak.
Question: Could a bead of high temp silicone be applied to both sides of
the aluminum gasket and reassembled without causing more leaks? This stuff
dries like rubber and may seal the leak.
Any thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the responses thus far from Doc and Marsh Monster. From the
feedback I've gotten, I've learned that it's not a good thing to overtighten
I'll use the hi-temp silicone as an interim fix and resign myself to the
fact that I'll be replacing the gaskets in a year or so.
