Exhaust gasket

'Morning all. So I changed my oil and got everything back together and now I'm getting some backfire. Exhaust gasket... The flange is a little bowed and it was a bear getting it back together. I'm pretty sure the gasket didn't stay centered and now I have a little leak. Suggestions on how to get the gasket to stay put while I put things back together? I tried regular grease, but it was less than helpful...

Use a dab of rtv sealant. That is what I have done in he past. May not be the correct method, but it worked for me.

That's what I was thinking. I'll be getting an ORK before my next oil change so I don't have to do this every time.
