    the 308 has an aftermarket stainless exhaust and i require new donuts before i can refit the exhaust.....the big box has a stainless plate. 1" x 1.5" with the number 109062 stamped on - anybody any ideas of source ?.....the donuts are 50 mm ins dia. 65 mm o/s dia. 12 mm thick @ 50 dia and symmetrically reducing to 6mm thick at 65 dia.......the 50 mm dia sleeve type portion of protective mild steel (which is part of the three bolt flange detail) has corroded away, and i obviously do not wish to replace both st/st manifolds for the sake of this minor missing section......is it possible to buy fibre type donuts with these metal inserts factory fitted ???
    thanks for your time.

    By donut do you mean some sort of gasket or the rubber thingy's you use to hang the exhaust?

    if its the latter try your local exhaust n tyre place

    the donut is (in my case) the fibre or glass fibre, conical sectional gasket which fits between mating flanges of the exhaust sections.......i have scoured all the local exhaust centres, but to no avail.......if i could source the aftermarket exhaust manufacturer, life would be easier - maybe i should post a photo.
    thanks, andrew

    I got some from Ferrari UK last year when I fitted a TUBI to the 308.
