Exhaust leak at the collector

Hey guys. Wondering if any of you have had this issue. I have a set of V&H comp slip-ons installed on my F and I've been dealing with some exhaust leaks. I first noticed them after I installed more restrictive baffles in the mufflers to quiet the pipes down a bit. I used JB Weld gasket maker to plug the leaks between the headers and the slip-ons but I also for some reason seem to have a leak at the collector between the stock headers. Seems odd, since I've never removed the headers or messed with them in any way. This seems to be a new problem. When I put my hand over it, I can feel a significant amount of air moving and I have pretty bad decel pop that I can't tune out with my Power Vision. Should I attempt to use JB Weld on the collector, or will it be too hot for it to hold? Thanks.

May be the clamps. They are one time use only. They will stretch when tightened. I have gotten away with using the clamps a couple of times but that is all.

I'm not sure it's the pipe clamp in my case, since tightening it did nothing, but that does give me an idea. If the thing got looser, it's possible that the connection slid apart a bit over time. I'm gonna try re-seating everything from the collector down. Thanks.
