Default Exhaust Leak

So I get the oil pan out change the gasket get it back in and now have a exhaust leak. It seems to be right where the exhaust comes off the manifold. Anybody able to tell me if there is a gasket or possibly a donut gasket there? As well as is it possible to remove the Smog Pump without effecting the running of the truck? Thank You for any Help with this

The gasket where the exhaust system headpipe bolts to the exhaust manifold flange in not a donut per se, but a flat gasket that is kinda round. Two bolts and its off. You do want to try to tighten the new one up equally instead of cinching down one side and then the other. Removing the smog pump may leave the air injection line the goes to the back of the head open allowing exhaust to leak. My pump seized and I just removed the belt and left everything in place component wise.
