Not required.

Just use a minimum amount of high temp gasket sealer. Give it some time to set before you fire it up - usually a few hours or overnight.

I use the thin soft aluminium metal type, and have zero leakage. I have also used a thin layer of 5 minute epoxy, and this gave great results. I have never used silicon or gasket sealant on the exhaust since I have read many horror stories on this site of what happens when the stuff get in your engine. I suppose it may work if you are carefull on how much you put on the surfaces.

I don't use a gasket or sealer. What i have done is to file the exhaust manifold flat and bolt it on.. If it still leaking i remove the engine and file the exhaust outlet flat but that was only 1 engine a tt 50. Never had a problem with OS..

Just what Mbkite said. Two properly machined surfaces shouldn't need a gasket for the exhaust. If you don't have a mill or lathe, take a piece of glass and some wet/dry sand paper and wet it and start sanding.

If we knew what we were doing, we wouldn't call it research

Gaskets always fail
The head gasket on my car is still going strong after 7 years!

If a gasket fails it is usually because one or both of the mating surfaces has warped or moved in some way.

Why does OS put a thin paper gasket on the backplate of the hyper 50?

Why does Yamada use a rubber o-ring on the backplate of the YS 50?

Maybe cause it's not as hot as the exhaust port

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them
