Hi Guys,
One of the bolts that holds the exhaust to the other part of the exhaust with
the catalytic converter in it has come out, and now I have a leak, and only
one bolt holding it.
Any tips on the type or size of bolt to use? It's an EL Falcon.
Cheers, Art.

Just get the best fitting bolt you can, try not to have too much thread stickin out, do it up as tight as u can. Dont bother about using Nylocks either because the nylon will just melt anyway

You can use "Cone lock" nuts. They don't come loose in a hurry.

So there's no special type for the heat then?
Thanks :)
