    I'm putting together my intake and exhaust manifolds. I'm cleaning everything up, and have new gaskets. I need to put the two end horns in, and I bought the springs and rings.
    I've look everywhere for a video, or other explanation on how the springs and rings are put together.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Spring goes in first, ring goes next, right on top. Stagger the openings. No RTV is generally recommended tho some have used a high temp one.

    Do not tighten anything till you get all the bolts and nuts in place on the head...

    On those rings and springs... roll them into the grooves, one groove at a time, as stated, put the gap of the spring at 180 degrees opposite gap of ring and reverse directions of the second groove so the gaps of the rings in both grooves are pointing away from each other...
