Question Up pipe donuts

Heard you could use a set of donut gaskets for a chevy 350 exhaust donut...their the same diamiter, and just a bit thicker.....

Did a search and found the part number, seems to be a 50/50 chance. I am needing to do mine also. Think I am going to do the bellowed pipes and hopefully never have to do them again. Anyone have a link to a write-up or tips on how to do this. Sorry, not trying to hi-jack your thread just need to do the same thing and could not find any tips or how-to's.

I just did mine they worked fine not a problem little aggrivating to get to but it helped I was puting my 4" exhaust on at the same time as far as getting the down pipe out of the way. Mine cost $3.17 each.

This is bandaid type fix. I've heard a lot of guys using the chev donuts and some work and some don't. If you want a proper fix either go to the bellows and get rid of them all together or just get the correct donuts being they are made of the correct material and WILL work and get new up pipes, because your old ones are garbage as they will be all galled and messed up where the old donuts rubbed on them and will not reseal properly, use lots of antisize to put it all back together and be done with it.

If you add lots of antiseize to it that will give it the added lubricity needed to not mess up the pipes again and to last for a very long time.
