Hi there,

ON my 83 Brat, I started to get an exaust leake...off the right (passenger side) of the enging...I dissasembled last night to find that the gasket between the exaust port and that adapter thingy for exaust recirc for smog control is mostly gone...

it's not the standard oval shaped gasket with a hole in the middle and 1 in each ear, it's just a round ring of some kind from what I can tell.

I pulled that exaust port thingy off another engine that I have, but the gasket / bushing thing looks to almost be rubber in there....

what's it supposed to be?

anyone got a Napa or Schucks part number on one of those by chance...??

I talked to both of them, and they don't even know how to look it up..

help!!??!!!

Thanks in advance..

www.thepartsbin.com has them. They come individually tho (it says it's a pair, but it's not), so you need to buy two. $3 - $4 each I think.....

The "ring" you describe sounds like the one used between the y-pipe and the rest of the exhaust back to the muffler....

that ring is just the last remnants of a gasket i bet. there should be no gasket between the head and the little cast iron emissions adaptor. and a metal/graphite composite gasket between the emissions adaptor, and the manifold.

According to my parts book, there IS a ring type gasket between the head and the adaptor/spacer for the metal line to the ASV. It is Subaru part #4221 7010. Hope this helps.

UPDATE..:

I went down to NAPA, and did some checking..had them get out the "Box-O-gaskets"....what we came up with is a gasket for a Toyota...what year, or model I'm not sure....but here it is if anyone needs it..

F14592 is the part number on the bag that was covering it.. It had orriginal napa cardboard in the bag, and it was un-opened util I got it... what it is is a round donut style gasket / ring that has a metal surround on the outside, treated cardboard like hard inner portion and another thin ring on the inside...

it's nice na thick, and as I was bolting it up, it made a very nice fit and a GREAT seal....something I'm not used to up till this point with this car...

anyway...that's the update..hope the info does someone some good.

RTV is your friend for sealing a lot of those oil leaks. I've used it with much success on intake manifolds, valve covers, and oil pans. It will make even the cheapest gasket take notice.

Was it hard to replace the gasket? Was it tough getting the nuts off?...rusted? What would you rate the level of difficulty? I just don't want to do further damage.

Soak all nuts and/or bolts liberaly with vienerslicum and let it sit overnight. The original poster hasnt been on the board in quite a while so maybe someone thats done the job will pitch in as to how difficult it might be. I think the hardest part of the job is the location. Is this the same problem as you are experiencing?
