 +===== Homemade Exhaust Gasket Installer =====
 +
 +You can toss the gaskets into the freezer for about a half hour to shrink them up a little before installing them. \\
 +A good hour or two works better but that still may not help much. \\ 
 +Then, carefully tap them into place with a 2x4 piece of wood and a hammer. \\
 +Try not to fold them over while seating them into the counterbore.
 +
 +2x2 piece of wood used below... could have had better results with a 2x4. \\
