    now what?

    i was very gingerly cutting the gasket opening wider (to match the port exhaust) and the darn thing ripped right where I had it clamped!

    now what?

    new gasket ;)
    at any auto parts store, you might have to cut one out of some stock material.

    You can pick up some gasket maker at a local auto parts store and make a new one.

    Waste o' time messing with an old gasket. Get some HD Mr. Gasket re-inforced exhaust gasket material (well stocked auto parts place or speed shop)

    Or search for EGR Valve gasket. They are metal and hold up to the heat. I have seen posts with part numbers. But I would still get the gasket material, youll need it...

    Mr larkin PM me your address and I'll send you a good exhaust gasket or two for a couple of bucks. I make mine out of high temp gasket material that can also be used for head gaskets.
