When I put my south bend clutch in. Their was black all over the tranny. Ran to auto zone, bought some regular donate gaskets (soft one) for around 4.00. Got more boost, quieter motor, and better fuel economy. Plus more power


I've never had another problem.

I also tried to install the chevy donut gaskets. For get it. The owner of the truck decided to go back to the original ones.

I also need new gaskets for my up pipes. I am looking at getting bellowed pipes. But I am thinking these might be worth the try.

I guess if you had some wicked long extensions or the transmission out, it would be alot easier.

I had to buy a set of bellowed pipes.

make sure if you use the beans ones you HAVE to use a torch to preheat them. you need to do this to expand them enough to even fit and then make sure you use alot of PB blaster or something after you have them on the pipe as you crank it down. this will allow them to smash as they are designed to do. someone on here didn't torch them to make them fit they smashed the hell out of them with a hammer and after all the hassle they ended up leaking anyhow. Beans diesel should have all the details on installation

Well I think I will give them a try. I saw some copper ones on Ebay a few months ago for 60 bucks but they are not on there anymore. But hey 85 bucks hopefully it will last.

I used the chevy donuts from Carquest and they work great...a lot cheaper than those brass ones you are looking at. The Carquest gaskets seemed softer than the Napa ones, allowing more gasket crush and better seal around the pipe.
