Default how do you hold the exhaust rings in

Installing headers for the 1st time in a long time. What do you guys use as a temporary stickum to hold the exhaust rings in place while installing headers or exhaust manifolds? I used to use a small dab of wheel bearing grease to hold them in place.

I usually jam them in to one side of the exhaust and hope for the best lol. Otherwise I use a light solid grease like DC111. Wheel bearing grease works well too

Anti-seize, a dab of copper hi-temp RTV, or as mentioned already a little grease.

Don't overthink this. A couple spots of Super Glue do the job nicely. Grease is messy and smokes when you start the engine, runs out as it melts first. Super Glue is instant, and the ring won't move until you start tightening the flange clamp bolts.

I found an old tube of copper high temp rtv which I used on my header flanges and worked pretty good. I got a new tube of it & used some of it, on the exhaust rings, and got the passenger (easy side) done. I hate installing headers. hate hate hate.

Doing it before installing the engine makes it nice and easy.

Great idea.

Never occurred to me.

There's always different ways to do a particular job.

The trick, in life, is to know which of those ways are stupid....
