exhaust leak where exhaust meets cat

hey fellas,

'92 yj, 4.0

i've got an exhaust leak that i've tracked down to, i'm pretty sure, where the exhaust comes down into the cat. tomorrow i'm going to drop that big shield that's in the way so that i can get to it but i have a question before i get up underneath it. is that a flanged connection, or is there a gasket in there? for that matter, from what i can tell i'm going to need to drop the tailpipe/muffler, and then the cat so i'm wondering if any of these are gasket connections or if they're just flange or clamp style.

thanks!

Be sure to support the transfer case/transmission when you drop the big shield thing since that is holding them up. There is a gasket inbetween the bolted sections of the exhaust.

i know its kind of ghetto, but i have used seafoam to pinpoint exhaust leaks in the past. dump it in, let it sit, then look for the white smoke pouring out of where it's not supposed to be! it helps when you are doing your own welding. that being said, i wouldnt do it more then every once in a blue moon, when all other options are exhausted.
