Installing new exhaust elbows``
Just put one of my two new exhaust elbows on my 120's. New hoses, heavy duty clamps, and new gasket that came with the elbows. However! The 3 1/2" hose slid effortlessly over the flange as I coated both the hose and the elbow with a film of Dawn dishsoap to help. Seemed very loose, but he hose was the same hose I took off. Cranked and cranked the clamps quite a ways but it still leaks a little water at the bottom of the hose at the elbow. But worse, it's leaking at the bottom of the elbow at the manifold. I cleaned the manifold of all old built up chunks of whatever and I painted the new elbows and it was very flat. The gaskets that came from Bomarc were very thick and I would have thought they'd seal easily. What now? I'm about to do the other engine but I was wondering if I can use some sort of gasket sealer at least on the gasket but what about on the hose over the flange?? Anybody else have this issue?
Thanks in advance..
