jaffa, had a complete nightmare, yep used two sets of o ring gaskets, seems no 3 header is slightly out of alignment, as its stainless it wont even give a few milimetres.  I have been told its copper spray? dont know never used it or had to..but as the bike is stripped may as well do a good job of it! The pfft noise dissapears once she is warm but as fan isnt on yet i can run her up fully.  I dont want the fan on as i cant get the sealant on otherwise! catch 22.  I just want that part done so i can sort out the rest of her and have her running statically over the next few months so i can move her..

A length of tubing, one end poked in your ear, and the other played around the exhaust ports will  soon find the one that's blowing... :biggrin:

genuine o ring gaskets but the headers seem to be slightly mis shaped..they r form a c model and mine is a d..they do fit, just a mod near the oil filter housing..have to zip off the bolt mount for the c model as its right under the filter housing.  I ll try some pipe tomorrow..onthe malt scotch, finishing off the pre xmas supply, 12 yr old Glenfiddich.
