>Are we talking about the washers on the exh. manifold studs located in the
head? No way a 1/8" thick washer is going to deform under 30ft/lbs of torque

not seal, there is no need to seal the stud in the head, its not in contact
with any exh. gas.

rubber in contact wtih a hot exh. header will vaporize within minutes...
