I'm getting ready to pull the exhaust from the manifolds in order to get some clearance to install new tranny mounts. Before I do this I'm curious. What are the odds that I'll need new gaskets for the manifold/exhaust pipe joint, and/or new bolts for the same place? Is it easy to remove and install?

Don't want to get halfway through and find out I need new parts or tools!

There is a 100% chance that you will NOT need new exhaust donuts. Donuts are for GM's.

LOL thanks. Is there any kind of gasket, or something sealing the joint that I need to worry about?

Well I have never seen a gasket for them before.

But I am sure you could slap some Exhaust/Muffler Cement in there and that should take care of any leaks!

I have personally never did it on my Bird, but have done it on several other vehicles with good out comes....

well, before you put it all back together, put some muffler cement on the ball flange, because your prolly not gonna be able to tighten as tight as it was (because of old bolts and whatnot) so its just extra security.

LOL I've thought of a better way to get the tranny clear. I'm going to have "joints" put in the exhaust just after the Cats. Then I can loosen them and slip the exhaust off easily whenever I need to. :D

Thanks for the tips though. Come in handy if I ever get rid of the cats.
