Default Need a 22RE Header Gasket

Anyone have a 22RE header style exhaust manifold gasket laying around extra? The only replacement I can find has to be ordered and is 3-4 days out.

not sure if there is a difference between stock and header style but pretty sure I have a fel-pro in the garage if you want it, in Lakewood.

Does yours use the stock gasket? I have an extra OE style for my LCE if it helps. Jerry @ Groove usually has one in stock, too.

Meh, I used PermaTex on mine after two failures of OEM style. Been working fine for years now.

The OEM gasket is very thin metal, more of a heat shield for the plug wires. That may work OK with the OEM exhaust manifold but it was leaking with the header.

I bought a Hedman header style asbestos gasket which solved the exhaust leak issue on the original motor, but when I dropped in the new motor yesterday I screwed it up.

What kind of gasket sealer can you use direct on an exhaust manifold like this that can withstand the heat?

JKimmel is your Fel-Pro gasket just the thin tin or is it more like a regular exhaust gasket where it is metal sandwiched over something else to make it thicker?

you can use ultra copper, I had problems with header gaskets leaking on an old CJ-7 years ago, every 4 months or so they would start leaking again. Finally I put ultra copper on both sides of the gaskets and didn't have any more issues.

here is the one I have, I'd run it and I wouldn't feel the need to use RTV either.

That looks similar to my OEM one but it seems to have more material and thickness on it. Would it be possible to get it from you tomorrow (Sunday)? Send me your address and let me know what time would be good for you.

Thanks!

I am heading to Penrose early, meeting at the safeway that is west of I-25 on Lincoln at 8 AM, would you like to come get it there? Probably a lot closer than Lakewood
