Hi All
Just trailered my sedan over to get the headers hooked up. The mechanic says he needs a flange plate to attach to the headers. I thought that he should have been able to make one up?
What have people done ?

He should be able to source a flange plate. They take the exact same gasket donut as the standard zaust... just two of them  Grin. If he can't find a flange plate, then he can't make a exhaust for any grey motor.

Cheers,
Harv (appreciator of Myers gear).

I totally agree with Harv . I have had the same nonsense from exhaust guys [parts fitters ] and ended up making my own and taking them to a different exhaust guy . As we spiral toward a cashless society and real tradespeople retire there is going to be nobody to think on their feet and do this sort of work .

Thanks for all your replies. Pete has come to the rescue again for me.  Smiley.
Don't have much option up here to take some where else.
Harv is there a preferred method of design for the engine pipes for the headers?
Should he have the flange gasket??

Typically two pipes off the headers, joining into a single pipe not too far from the firewall (normally just after the firewall, under the car). The flanges are normally slip-on (not weld-on), with the engine pipes flared to retain them. Can also weld-on, provided he is confident on alignment (tack first). The gasket donut is available off the shelf - he should have them, if not SuperCheap does.

Cheers,
Harv

From SuperCheap/Repco/Autobahn etc, the flange gasket donuts are ACL JE359.

Junction not as far down as to affect your idler arm . I have had some exhaust guys adjust my drag link to get clearance only to find I cant steer my car home because it is pulling to the left as the steering box tries to centre itself .

I have a 2 in 1 out muffle on mine and makes the right noise and goes well even though the pipes are long
