Cylinder to headpipe flange assembly.
The BIGGER end of the spigot goes into the exhaust port.
Slide the flange onto the spigot until it bottoms on the bulged area.
NOTE: make sure the spring hole in the flange matches where the spring tab will be on the headpipe.
Slide the new HMF headpipe onto the spigot and install the springs.
NOTE: do not tighten the cylinder to spigot nuts until the complete system is on.
