Y adapter doughnut gasket help

It should tap off. got a big rubber mallet to whack it with? When I pulled my turbo off it was falling off at the point your at and it was pretty heavily corroded.

yea I beat on it for a bit.

I guess I'll just keep at it until it pops off.

I just didnt know if I was missing a step or something

just remember with the 2 up pipes coming up at an angle, it's putting a little bit of weird pressure on it. I'd work at getting one side off first and the other should just come out. maybe tap it back down and then start on one side.

Got it!

Ended up using 4ft of jack handles, propped under the Y, and beat down on the other end with a BFH! LOL~!
