Exhaust tubes

I had to chip the old donut gaskets off the tubes today took a while but got them cleaned and ready for new ones but a couple of the tubes felt a little loose is there something I need to do or will they tighten back up when I install the new manifolds thanks for any instruction. Mike

My name is Mike Worrell living in southern Iowa my vairs are a 64 2dr convertible monza 900 with 110 motor 4 speed light yellow with blk interior. Then a few months ago I got a 65 2 Dr convertible monza 900 with 110 motor 4 speed
Also light yellow with blk interior. Not sure what gear ratio as of now I'll have a look and up date. I really like them both but really liking the 65. They really made a lot of changes in a 1 year difference ????

They'll tighten up... but some will pull out and coat with exhaust paste.

Just tap and tighten several times.... not just once..

I hit the manifold relatively hard with a rubber mallet and keep checking the nuts until they don’t tighten anymore between hitting it all over with the mallet.

Good luck.

I have many different sockets and I use them to tap into the head side opening. you only want a .001". If you try to go to big then the sleeve will just split. After doing that I still use a little muffler cement when I put them back in. Just make sure that you put them in straight and also make sure the flat is parallel with the stud.
