Default Re: Replacing Gaskets

some people like to use gasket poo on their gaskets I don't. I make my own gaskets from quality gasket material I get from a gasket shop(scraps) that they throw away. I make the head gasket from a high temp material that is a type of fiber instead of dead soft aluminum. I use aluminum spray paint on both sides of the head gasket, metal or fiber, and install it while its still tacky and use a good torque wrench for the head bolts. check your surfaces with a straight edge to make sure they a true. file or sand the mating faces so the gasket will seal. I have a post showing me using wet/dry sand paper on a sheet of glass to mate the sealing faces on the head and the cylinder where it mates to the head.
