It is a sloppy setup with those pipes just sliding into the head. I also use the orange sillycone. After a few miles (500 to 1000) it seems like enough carbon builds up to seal them.
A buddy of mine who is a better mechanic than me uses an exhaust pipe expanding tool a bit at a time untill the fit is right.
I always figured you do not want them too tight because the pipes might expand and crack the port. My 61 has true dual exhausts with no crossover and you have to raise the motor or the head to get the rear pipe on there...a nightmare.
