Visually, you'll see white traces where the hot exhaust is escaping. Must common areas are the slip joints, welds for the heater boxes and collectors.

Yea those B&B's with heat always seem to crack right at the spot tig welds where the affix the sheet steel that forms the heater boxes. Wish-wash headers in my opinion
