Is it best to use sealant when fitting the new gaskets or not?
I learnt my lesson about this on my BMW R75/5 (35 years ago). I'd used black RTV on the petrol taps in an effort to stop them leaking and bits of RTV kept finding their way into the carbs.Then about six years ago the 205 Pug arrived on our doorstep, and I did a top end overhaul, and you've guessed it the inlet manifold was assembled with a silicone type black sealant?
Well the workshop manual advised this method which proved fine in service? :
:cheese:also worth mentioning, be very careful with the resin spacers, they are very very hard to get if you break them !
also ..... if you grind them out with a die grinder don't breath the dust in lol i felt funny for days !
what like this you mean"I just used one of my mums spare scouring pads and some rubber cleaner on the spacers. Came up a treat!"
its funny how many house hold things do a nice job on cars.. fairy liquid is great for cleaning stubborn greasy things ,.. we have this stuff called star drops that is brill on dash boards!
there's gotta be " how clean is your house " tv show based on cleaning your car with vinegar mixed with shampoo or something weird like that... is it me or is the big lady a bit scary ?
also how do you extract a quote from the previous message, also why do i ramble on when i have had red wine.. also...
