Exhaust damper/heat riser gasket or no gasket

I reinstalled the exhaust damper after machining the damper to manifold surface of the damper flat but I'm still getting an exhaust leak there. Do I need a gasket or does the manifold also need to be machined where it meets the exhaust damper?

I always had trouble finding the gasket at the parts house. I ended up taking the whole damper and finding one that fit. 1983 Ford ranger 2.8l flange gasket is what I think I ended up using.

Is it best to use the steel kind like BJ's sells or the composite material kind?

I just searched the part number (J5353073) and it came up AMC 360. Found it here: http://www.quadratec.com/products/51100_1011.htm

Slather some Copper Coat sealant on those gaskets if you want some extra insurance against future leaks.

If you're like me, you hate exhaust leaks because they make your car sound like a beat up pile of junk.

I feel the same. I'll try that. Mine may look like a pice of junk but it doesn't run like one.

Crown 5353073 worked perfect. Now I can hear my valve train noises more clearly!

In case anyone ever needs a new heat riser valve I have some NOS Jeep heat riser valves that include the flat gasket being talked about here.

NOS factory Jeep heat riser valve with flat gasket $45.00 shipped priority US-48.
