    Have been fighting a small collector gasket leak on my Hedman Hedders for quite some time - tried copper gaskets, the dead soft aluminum ones (best I've used), but still had small leak. Bought a set of Header Hush clamps for $31.95 locally, and leak is GONE. Definitely a nice setup. You still use a gasket (I stayed with the dead soft aluminum ones), the Header Hush simply clamps the flanges together completely flat. Good product. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    I have the same problem, and changing gaskets is getting to be a real pain. Who makes the clamps? This sounds like the solution to my problem. Thanks.

    Call a local NAPA or Baxters (that's where I found them) or any speed shop, ask for them by name. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Who has them and how much?

    I use donut gaskets for a regular exhaust manifold to pipe connection in mine and it seems to work really well also.

    Napa Guy "Uh.. What are those for?"

    Any other places you have heard of that sell these. Maybe an online store since I need to order the aluminum gaskets anyways. Thanks for letting us know about these.
