I replaced the exhaust manifold gaskets today on my '90 300SE. Unfortunately, I now have an exhaust leak. I think it's the forward down pipe. I thought I had it matched up well before tightening it up.

I loosened it and tried again, still leaking. I tried using soapy water to see if I could find where it's leaking, no luck.

I did notice some wear on the manifold at #4 cylinder, I cleaned it up and it was very minor.

Any suggestions as to what to do?
