  Blower Case gasket material inquery
Posted by: Matt - 02-17-2017, 03:07 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

I drive a 2002 Chevy S10 currently in the process of a V8 swap. I have a blower case (gm part number 52474409) ready to be installed but the blower case gasket (gm part number 52457440) has since been discontinued. I have come to the conclusion I'm going to have to make my own, just curious as to what gasket material you would recommend for my application.


Thanks

  Head gasket with rtv
Posted by: Jay49' - 02-16-2017, 04:01 AM - Forum: Head Gaskets - Replies (1)

Hello this afternoon my buddy and I installed new head gaskets on my big block Chevy. I went against my better judgment and allowed him to put two small dabs of our TV on the gaskets to hold them in place during installation. The dabs were extremely small but now I'm having a bad feeling about it. Do I need to remove and replace the gaskets or will I be OK? Thank you in advance

  Water and EGR gasket port restrictor blockoff
Posted by: Tim - 02-14-2017, 09:37 AM - Forum: Intake Manifold Gaskets - Replies (1)

I have a 1975 350 that is .30 over and flat top pistons installed in my 1965  Impala. I have a 1990 Camaro TPI setup and 1987 and up heads installed. I wish to put some Edelbrock Aluminum 5089 heads and a switch to 85 lower intake, runners and plenum. So that the pre 86 bolt pattern can be used. what I wish to know are the EGR and the rear water gasket port block offs available? The 1204 shows one for the EGR but the rear water got corrosion damaged over time and wrong coolant PH. I think at one time I saw these in a gasket set? Tim

  Timing Cover Seal Kt
Posted by: Jim - 02-12-2017, 05:52 PM - Forum: Timing Cover Gaskets - Replies (1)

Hi,

I am replacing a number of seals on my 1988 S-10 with a 2.8L V-6. As part of this work I purchased the TCS 45828 kit and wanted to check to see if the gaskets required any RTV when I put them in. 

Additionally I have the same question for the thermostat housing gasket 35258 but I can post that in a different thread if you prefer. 

Thank you for you time,
Jim

  Gasket Material for coffee roaster catalytic converter
Posted by: Cliff - 02-11-2017, 06:00 PM - Forum: Miscellaneous - Replies (1)

I'm servicing our coffee roaster and removed the catalytic converter for cleaning. I tore the original gaskets when removing and need to make new ones. I notice that advance auto has fel-pro gasket material in sheets which would be perfect if I knew which one would work.
Could you tell me which part number, for sheets, would work for high temperature and low pressure?
Thanks,
Cliff

  fel 1093/need more clearance
Posted by: Tony - 02-11-2017, 12:31 PM - Forum: Performance Head Gaskets - Replies (1)

Hello from Finland!
I have used fel 1093 gaskets in my race malibu, but unfortunantly blew up the engine last season. Now i would need more clearence for piston to head, what is the number for thicker gaskets( i couldn´t find any)? in 1093 thickness is  .051", something like .055-.060 would be better for my set up.
Regards,
Tony

  1983 Nissan Pulsar 1.6L Head Gasket
Posted by: Mike - 02-09-2017, 06:22 PM - Forum: Head Gaskets - Replies (1)

I bought a head gasket for my 1983 Nissan Pulsar 1.6L and when I compare it to the original gasket that came off the car, the Fel-Pro gasket has fewer holes cut into it? When I installed it and turned the engine over I have oil leaking from the gasket. Do I have the wrong gasket? Why isn't the Fel-Pro gasket exactly the same as my original (and this was original Nissan gasket). Are the missing holes the reason my gasket is leaking? Missing holes are all on the bottom of the gasket.

Thank you.

  Coffee Roaster Catalytic Converter gasket material
Posted by: Cliff - 02-09-2017, 03:28 AM - Forum: Exhaust Gaskets - Replies (1)

I'm doing some work on a coffee roasting machine that is fitted with a catalytic converter. The catalytic converter is heated with a natural gas flame thrower. I am hoping to find gasket material to recreate the one that I ripped. while removing the converter for service. I see on advanceauto.com there are countless product numbers for various gasket materials. Which Fel-Pro model number would suit my purpose of high temperature and relatively low pressure. The size that i need to recreate would need to be about 8" round. 
TIA
