Clutch job

Just started the tear down on my 2000 LT. Four hours later I am at the point where the final drive is next.
I do have a question about the exhaust. When I got it off there were no gaskets. The clymer leads me to believe there should be. Anyone know about this?

Re: Clutch job

They're probably just stuck up in there.

Re: Clutch job

They are usually covered in carbon and you need a pick to get them out. They are copper rings that crush flat.

Re: Clutch job

Copper gaskets are probably still stuck up in the head.

Re: Clutch job

Yep confirm I wondered too what had happened to the gasgets but there they were. Just had to use some screw driver to get them out. They spread / stuck in there when you tighten the exhaust bolts.

Born to be wild so why not
