  Recommended sealant
Posted by: D. Holmes - 05-24-2019, 02:16 PM - Forum: Oil Pan Gaskets - Replies (1)

I am replacing the oil pan gasket on the Chevrolet small block engine in my boat, using the OS 34500 R gasket. The instructions, for non-skirted engines, "require the use of a small amount of RTV sealant applied to each of the 4 corners on the block side of the gasket."


I would like to use a Permatex product, but with so many different sealants available, I am confused on which would be best for my application, Ultra Black, Ultra Grey, Ultra Blue?

Could you please recommend the best product to use with your OS 34500 R gasket in this application?


Thank you.

  2007 Toyota Camry Oil Pan Gasket
Posted by: hunter31789 - 05-23-2019, 01:29 PM - Forum: Oil Pan Gaskets - Replies (3)

I purchased a Fel-Pro oil pan gasket OS30713 for my 2007 Toyota Camry but there were 3 tubes of RTV silicon included with the gasket but no instructions on their use.  Do I apply to both sides of the gasket or just one side or just a specific place?

I have read that the bolt torque spec is 80 inch pounds.  Is this correct?

  Intake Gasket 1262S-3 Sealing
Posted by: ALAN - 05-22-2019, 02:23 PM - Forum: Performance Intake Manifold Gaskets - Replies (3)

I have a 351W with AFR 205 aluminum heads and Edlebrock intake manifold with SS AFR Bolts.  I have had coolant leaks from the intake a couple of times when my car sits for the winter.  I previously used 1250 gaskets.  I plan to use HEILCO-LOCK Wedge Lock Washers on the bolts to eliminate any loosening and torque to 18 ft lbs per edelbrock instructions.    I have a set of 1262S-3 composite gaskets. One side has printo seal, does that side mate with the intake? Do I need RTV silicon around the coolant ports on the head?  Thank you.  Alan

Is sealant needed for these gaskets? If so what kind is recommended?

  Gaskets for uneven valve cover flange on Big Block Chevy?
Posted by: anthony - 05-15-2019, 06:08 AM - Forum: Other Performance Gaskets - Replies (1)

I installed some Fel-pro rubber gaskets.  They were inexpensive, and only .012 thick.  I noticed some gaps right away, and into the garbage they went.

The flange on the original valve covers are less than even, and there's only so much I can do, because the covers have been professionally painted.  

I prefer gaskets that aren't too thick, but they surely have to be thicker than the gaskets I chucked.  I'd like to use the TR bolts and spreader retainers.  The bolts are 9/16" long.  Can you recommend a gasket for this application?

Thank you

  Chevy BB mark IV and head gasket 1027
Posted by: Fredrik - 05-13-2019, 05:33 PM - Forum: Performance Head Gaskets - Replies (3)

Hi,
I have an early Chevy BB mark IV (without the two extra holes for coolant). I also have a set of 1027 head gaskets, I know that the gaskets are designed to work with aluminum heads but I heard that they will work also with my stock cast iron head.
Some people drill the two extra holes using the gasket as a template so my question is; Is it correct to drill the holes or will it ruin the cooling of the engine?

  Intercooler Seal/Gasket
Posted by: Stew - 05-13-2019, 02:55 PM - Forum: Miscellaneous - Replies (2)

Hello, I am looking to make some temporary gaskets for the intercooler on my 2005 WRX. The auto store near me has the Fel Pro 3157, will this work to seal the intercooler mounts coming from the turbo to the intercooler and also the intercooler wastegate mount. I have a new turbo kit and seals coming in on friday, but when i took everything apart to check part numbers I absentmindedly forgot I'd be breaking seals to look at them...

  TCS 46077 Front Crank Seal
Posted by: James - 05-11-2019, 09:24 PM - Forum: Crankshaft Seals - Replies (1)

While working on an '06 Buick Lacrosse, 3.8L VIN 2, I noticed the O.E. front crank seal was a PTFE type, with "install dry" embossed on the seal. The copy of the workshop manual I was using provided by Alldata says to lubricate both the harmonic dampener and seal with engine oil. Hmm. There was other information provided in that manual that was incorrect and so I think this information was bogus as well. The replacement Fel-pro kit had a seal that appeared to be built in a similar manner, however there is no indication of seal type or whether to install with or without engine oil. I opted to install dry. Hopefully I made the right call.
Anyone savvy?


Thanks, James

  Timing cover gasket
Posted by: pdubois64 - 05-10-2019, 09:09 PM - Forum: Timing Cover Gaskets - Replies (1)

Hi I have a 1976 Corvette 350 ci on which I just replaced the rear main seal and installed the Fel-pro one piece oil pan gasket.

What gasket would be best to match up to the oil pan gasket? Will it match up or will it need to be trimmed to fit?

Thanks
