    have de-smogged my 2F FJ60.

    Replaced EGR 'feed' pipe (from #6 exhaust manifold) with a steel plate
    and used 'factory' gasket (seal ? ).

    Well, it's kaput,,,I sound like an ol schewl buz.

    Replaced that gasket every 2-3 yr before de-smoggen . . .

    Anyway, wuz thinken bout using two layers of copper plate ( thin sheet).
    Rough up surface (60 grit), two layers, squash between plate & manifold.

    Anyone tried this ? any better / different ideas ?

    Thanks,

    Pete
