Noticed my vintage speed exhaust was blowing only been in 18 months and the gaskets are compleatly rotten the flanges don't mate together very well but I've seen that you have to use sealent. Anyone else had similar experience?

Can you file the flanges flat and try not to over torque the nuts

Seen this many times, so I've had these re-useable copper gaskets made.
