Gasket Related Repair Advice

  • When a gasket is replaced, the sealing surfaces of the two components must be inspected. If damage is found, replacement or repair of the damaged component will be necessary.
  • The sealing surfaces must be free of dirt and debris so the new gasket will seal correctly.
  • In some cases, an additional sealing compound, a "gasket sealer," is used to ensure that the gasket seals correctly.
