[purple]Is there a "donut" type gasket between the exhaust manifold and the pipe that should be replaced after dissassembly?

Some use what i would call a Graphite or lead gasket in between, and some don't. Others are just metal to metal, than i would just use some gasket maker or high temp silicone to seal it. Make sure your exhaust springs are still good and not stretched out.

You know I was was wonderin' about that. My 96 XLT SP does not have a tight seal between the exhaust pipe and where it connects to the 3 to 1 exhaust manifold that comes off the motor. I wanted to seal it but was not sure what I could use. I does not look like there is a donut to be replaced. Would anything by Permatex work? They seem to be makers of liquid gaskets for many things.

There is no Donut on the XLT's. The silicone I have seen used mostly is the orange stuff. It is Permatex Hi-temp "Ultra copper".

I didn't think so. I couldn't see where it would fit. So should it be sealed if exhaust leaks from it until the motor is warm or should I just leave it be?
