Never assume a new gasket was used:)

Those exhaust nuts need to be retorqued. If not you will soon be pulling the exhaust, redoing the mating surfaces and putting a new gasket in there.

That should be corrected because if the gasket burns out then you have a loose exhaust etc.. Very unpleasant.

Cripes! Thanks, the plane is grounded until that's looked at!
