202 Blue extractor leak.

Hi guys, I’ve been batltling a extractor leak on my 202, I’ve tried everything to fix it but can’t get it to seal, the manifold and extractors don’t sit flush so the previous owners cut the outer studs etc to get it right although now I can’t figure what goes where.

It’s running a Redline Torker 2 manifold and a unbranded set of exrtractors.

The flange on the extractors is 11mm and Manifold is 15 mm, there isn’t really enough room to put a weld up the extractors because the old owner has cut them very oddly, am I best buying a new set that have a 15mm flange and new set of studs?
Any help would be appreciated as I just want to get it driving again, thank you in advance.

A machine shop or engine builder should be able to take 4mm off the inlet manifold. Problem solved.

Old is good.

maybe consider something like this http://www.kustombit...
I'd be inclined to just grind/file down the original mounting washers on one side to get a decent fit (compression) between exhaust and inlet manifold..

thats one of the reasons i got rid of my extractors years ago
and put two piece headers on from a x2
using 2 exhaust gaskets helps but you can file some off the inlet manifold where the washers sit and add metal to the extractors where they are to even the contact surface
so you get good pressure on them
