Default exhaust manifold to exhaust pipe

Does anyone know the thread count and size of the 2 studs that come out the bottom of the exhaust manifold. I have misplaced one of mine and the doughnut will not seal. Just wandering if I could buy one new instead of going to a bone yard. Thanks for all y'all's help.

Go to an exhaust shop. If they charge you over $10 to put a new one in I would be surprised

I got the new nut and installed it but I still have a exhaust leak at the manifold to cat pipe flange. I was told by the shop that there are no doughnuts it is a metal to metal seal and that I need a new cat pipe cost over $600. is there a cheaper way to seal this joint. need all the help I can get. Thanks

Subbing , I have the same problem , y pipe to cat flanges are going . I thought I would take a gasket and make flanges to weld on to the pipes
