Anyone know where I can get an exhaust manifold gasket quick
 
I have blown out the exhaust manifold I just had put on. It must be something stupid like it wasn't tight enough or something.

I have to replace the gasket and I can't drive it the way it is and am trying to save the weekend.

Anyone know where I can get a port side exhaust manifold gasket

High temp RTV silicone. That's what the OEMs use. Follow the directions! Don't over torque. Use lock-tite on bolts. Torque to spec. Let it sit, overnite. Done.

Really, RTV thats it.

What directions :D

I would go with a higher quality gasket.

Cut one!

I wouldn't use anything on the bolts. If anything, chase the threads down with a bottom tap and clean the blots with a hand held wire brush. Be sure the make sure the mounting seats and cheeks of the bolts are clean too.

Loctite is a is definite no no on exhaust bolts/studs.

You're in Chicago? There HAS to be a MC dealer around there.

Get some good gasket material and make one. Very easy just place on top of manifold surface and rub head of a hammer around the internal & external edges and it will leave an outline of where to cut it.
