Liquid gasket - April 21, 2012, 05:29 PM

I'm looking to replace an engine cover and need a liquid gasket but know nothing about them. Anyone have a recommendation? Thanks.

They suck, in my opinion. Buy a real gasket and use liquid gasket to supplement it.

It doesn't work well by itself.

This

And if you're having trouble finding a gasket for your application, cut your own from gasket paper. I did it on my vette for the throttle bodies. Warn't pretty, but it worked great.

That would depend on if it was designed for a gasket, many are engines are designed for three bond anaerobic sealer and no gasket.

Gray RTV will work for most applications. I have used liquid gasket for years with real good results. It only works with on a good clean surface that is smooth. It it has a channel in it for a rubber o-ring type gasket you have to use that as well.
