Gasgacinch

planning to install intake manifold today.

edelbrock says to use gaskacinch on head side to prevent intake gasket walk, etc.

as things go...have not found gasgacinch locally...hate to wait for mr post man again.

any other gasket sealers work well w/ Steel Laminate Printoseal gaskets and aluminum intake?

I have always used the red Permatex high-tac. It is an aerosol. Spray it on and let it dry pretty good before sticking the gasket down.

What COBALT327 said...and I'd REALLY reconsider which place to glue the gaskets, too. Personally I'D glue them to the intake. That way, if you ever needed to scrape/replace the gaskets, it's much easier to scrape the intake. Not to mention easier to get the residue/crap out of the intake rather than have it fall into the ports...

I used permatex brush on high tack last time on sides.
used clear rtv on ends; no cork.
was leak free for roughly 7 years then developed a very slight weep at front corner. pretty good; not perfect.

i am interested in the spray but i like idea of putting something on head also not just gasket?

The cement is used to hold the gasket in position only- not as a sealer. I use a dot at three places across the gasket, not all over the gasket or surrounding the ports or water X-over, etc. Just to hold it.

Gaskacinch is nothing more then repackaged or relabeled contact cement (think the flammable DAP from a big box store). It looks, smells and acts/works exactly the same. I bought a can when I replaced the fuel pump eccentric - a waste of money when you can buy a quart of DAP for the price of that 4oz can. I used the DAP for years then thought I would go "pro level" --- not!!

{Now let the flames rise }

i have weather strip adhesive...will consider dap contact cement. i think dap is easier to work with and weather strip adhesive is stronger.

plan to use adhesive around bolt holes to hold gasket in place. problem is i like to place intake manifold on gasket so it dries flat; but gasket may shift if adhesive not yet dry. sounds like the weatherstrip or contact cement will work good if i allow adhesive to tack dry before applying rtv around ports.

plan to use rtv silicone on every surface around ports.

plan to discard cork rail gaskets and use 1/4" rtv bead on rails plus 1/8" rtv on intake above rails.

plan to seal threads w/ pipe dope or TEFC tape or permatex #2 or permatex brush on high tack? i like thread sealer that can be tightened after heat cycle.

will use guide pins to promote accurate intake seating.

Thanks for the help

huh...rtv silicone is not recommended for gasoline applications.

may use rtv from water ports to rail and high tack on fuel ports.

You can also use indian head. I used that on mine and that stuff works good. You can also use the permatex high tac as well. Either one will do the trick for you wanting to use it for. I use permatex right stuff gasket maker around the water ports on the cylinder head side and nothing on the intake side since the felpro gaskets I used had sealing strips already made on the gasket so did not have to use any there.
