Thanks CR. I just talked to my mechanic and he said he considered doing that but now that I mentioned it that he would do it.

Rossterman, That is the route we are going. Hopefully it will save the weekend.

Does anyone know the tourque specs. I'd like to send him a message with those just to make sure.

another guy said there must be an MC dealer around. I'll stick with the guy who should have done it right the first time last week. He is pretty embarrassed. Said its never happened before. And of course it is being repaired at no charge.

When I worked as a machinist we never bought gaskets and made all of them. These were for high pressure pumps and turbines so you will be 100% OK going that route. Use a ball pien hammer (round end ) to make the bolt holes. Wish I had a dime for every gasket I made, I'd be retired now

Percy "seal 4 good" exhaust gaskets Part Number: 66012 square port exhaust 5.7L TBI motor correct? Or Part Number: 66011 for round port exhaust, reusable and never blow out, source them into the "performance" section of your local auto parts. I have them on my boat.
