1976 CJ7 Exhaust Leak
Recently purchased my 76 CJ7 and I am trying to tackle the exhaust leak. I have the 4.2L inline 6 with true dual exhaust on it. Both of the pipes are put together with a muffler clamp and it looks like the exhaust pipe is just pushed into the header. There is no header flange/gasket installed. Both joints are leaking pretty badly. I crawled underneath while it was running and just felt around the joints and could feel pretty good bit of puffing around there. I do not know the brand of header or exhaust, both look pretty crappy IMO. Should I just replace everything? Should I just cut the pipe from the header and weld on a flange that I can bolt up to a new set of pipes with a gasket in place? Here is a picture of one.
