My '89 Jeep Comanche Pioneer straight six 4x4 truck has a screwed up
exhaust manifold gasket - it protrudes in the front with a leak at that point.
Here is a picture where I had stuffed Aluminum Foil into the 'crack' where
The foil worked quite well until the pressure blew it out !
Without removing the manifold and replacing the gasket (big bucks!),
I want to try again.
So I bought some Permatex High-Temp Red RTV Silicone in a tube.
I intent to clean out any Aluminum Foil remaining and try to stuff some
of this Silicone between the Head and the Manifold (using thin wires)
and let it set up.
Any other suggestions without doing the full head gasket replacement
(last resort!) ????
I was thinking of mixing the RTV with chopped up fiberglass, also.....
