Thanks for your reply.

  Why Not to Use RTV
Posted by: Jeff - 08-18-2017, 08:09 PM - Forum: Oil Pan Gaskets - Replies (1)

Here's exactly what happens when you use RTV sealant when you're not supposed to.
 It only lasted a week, note the distortion of the actual seal vanes.
 The RTV sealant kept the gasket from seating properly and a leak was inevitable.

  Is HS 9898 PT-1 Head set compatible with both 360 and 318
Posted by: Michael - 08-16-2017, 02:31 AM - Forum: Gasket Sets - Replies (1)

I purchased a head set from E-bay that indicated the head set mentioned in the subject line was in fact compatible with my 318 ci 96 Dodge Ram 1500.  When it arrived it was a fel-pro head set for a 360 ci 5.9 litre 1997-93 kit.  Is this kit useful to me or do I have to get a 319 kit, as I was intending to use the valve cover gaskets and the valve stem seals?  I would appreciate any advise as the kit can not be opened in order for it to be returned.

  Gasket overhang the cylinder chamfer
Posted by: Mike - 08-15-2017, 02:22 PM - Forum: Head Gaskets - Replies (3)

I'm using gasket 8266-pt1 on a 1974 AMC 401 with 4.195 cylinder bore. When checking the gasket fit I noticed several spots where the fire ring is flush with the top edge of the chamfer or slightly overhanging, enough to barely catch a fingernail and does not overhang the piston at all. I've checked several gaskets, each with similar but varying degrees of overhang. There is no overhang into the chamber on the heads. 

The overhang on the cylinder, is this enough to be concerned about?

  Jeep 3.7 Head Gasket Torque
Posted by: GaryL - 08-14-2017, 04:54 PM - Forum: Head Gaskets - Replies (3)

I am replacing the heads on a 2003 Jeep Liberty 3.7L. I used gasket 26229 PT and new head bolts ES 71129-1. The FSM calls for the following process:

  • Step 1: Tighten bolts 1–8, 27 N·m (20 ft. lbs.).
  • Step 2: Verify that bolts 1–8, all reached 27 N·m (20 ft. lbs.), by repeating step-1 without loosening the bolts. Tighten bolts 9 thru 12 to 14 N·m (10 ft. lbs.).
  • Step 3: Tighten bolts 1–8, 90 degrees (Fig. 12).
  • Step 4: Tighten bolts 1–8, 90 degrees, again. Tighten bolts 9–12, 26 N·m (19 ft. lbs.)
Toward the end of the second 90 degrees, on more than one bolt, I felt the resistance to turn the bolt lessen as if the bolts stretched. The FSM states that these are NOT TTY bolts. 

Should I reverse the procedure and remove the bolts to inspect them? Can I reuse the gasket if I do not remove the head and leave a small amount of torque on (20 ft lbs) on seven of the bolts to keep the head and gasket from shifting?

  Felpro 1003 head gasket MLS equivalent?
Posted by: cet2302 - 08-14-2017, 06:07 AM - Forum: Performance Head Gaskets - Replies (3)

I have a 383 SBC 69 Camaro with cast block and heads containing pop up pistons (7544P 030), Lunati cam # 08101 (.528 in / .534 ex) with Lunati lifters 70992 and springs 73100 with an installed height of 1.850", Harland Sharp 1.6 rockers on 3/8 studs, topped with a Weiand Xcelerator single plane intake. The head gasket that came off was a 1003.  In the future I would like to add a Procharger supercharger (low end hp version).  Would the 1003 still hold up or is there an MLS version that I should consider?

  Gasket set Hs 9036 Pt-2
Posted by: Mike - 08-13-2017, 10:39 PM - Forum: Gasket Sets - Replies (1)

I'm looking for part number for the gaskets in the box. It would be easier if the part numbers were on each bag inside the box.  I typed in each part number into the internet listed on the front of the box and 8 on the list don't show up for my car. I have 5 gaskets I don't know were they go. Your photo show online on the bottom line of gaskets,from left to right number there are 3,4,8,9 and 10. Number 3" is about three inches wide and real heavy must be for exhaust mine doesn't have that. Number 4 is about 1- 1/4" wide 1/4" thick.  Number 8 is about 1" wide and 9 and 10 are about 1/2" wide.

  Valve stem seal color
Posted by: Steve - 08-13-2017, 09:30 PM - Forum: Valve Stem Seals - Replies (1)

I purchased your kit number HS 26522 pt ( 2010 ford 2.5l) the kit came with no instructions or identifications on any of the seals. The valve seals are green or brown - which is for exhaust. Can you provide any installation instructions for this kit?
