Default Re: gasket question

silicone rtv a little dab smeared on the nut and the thread will work as poorboy locktite. This almost sounded nasty I might have to ban myself

on gaskets no need to slather on the silicone but if you feel better a very thin coating of silicone rtv on both sides of the gaskets surfaces will not hurt anything and if you want to smear it on the exhaust gasket may I recommend the very high temp silicone rtv for the exhaust. ON the head gasket I like to use aluminum spray paint the cheap stuff that has real aluminum in it which will be listed on ingredients on the can use it wet or let it dry first and a good medium to heavy coat on both sides will work.
