I need Intake End gaskets - FELPRO!!!!
 
I keep seeing that my colleague enthusiasts generally don't like to use the end gaskets on their intakes. I happen to like the FELPRO stickon end pieces and they have worked well for me.

My problem is that I have two sets of intake gaskets AND no end pieces left :( and you can't get them without buying the whole set :evil: ---- so if any of you silicone/RTV guys have any of those, I would be happy to take them off your hands, for a few dollars of course ;)

Just email or pm me and get them out of your parts box :thumbup:

What engine?

Tomard 10-08-2008 01:12 PM

I guess that is relevant :) SBC 350

i refuse to rummage through the trash.

If I was 'building' one, that was going to be "Auctioned" off, through "Barret's per say, It would have to have the "factory" gaskets. If it leaks, who cares, I don't.

Use a 1/4" bead of Permatex Ultra Black silicone, on the front and rear, of the intake manifold end areas. 'Dabbing' it into the corners that meet the cylinder head.

I like to use "gaskacinch" for the rest of the intake.

Rant over :D

I will probably have to end up doing that, but since I had good fortune with it, and MANY seem to not want to use them, I thought I'd ask .... :rolleyes:

I always clean the surfaces thoroughly before applying the silicone.
Let it sit for five minutes before laying the intake on it.

Same here. Laquer thinner works great!

I prefer to use the gaskets. Why would you "not" use them and use silicone in place of the gaskets?

Because(in my opinion) it works better.

Most of the manufactures must think so also as they package a small tube of RTV instead of the gaskets.

the gasket will slip out of place if not carefull,

end gaskets...for sbc
 
Hi,if using the actual end gaskets,i used to take a center punch and put punch marks about every 1/4 inch,now,i use the black permatex.no problems.

speedydeedy 10-08-2008 06:37 PM

GM stopped using the gaskets so I don't use them either. I have a brand new set from MR GASKET ultra seal part # 5820.I won't be using the ends.If you want them you can have them.They are the type with the lip that hangs over on both sides not the ones with the pins that fit in the holes.Let me know if you want them and I will mail them to you.

FELPRO ends - Not the rubber ones!
 
The felpro ends are made of cork, but have sticky underside to them, that you have to peel off protective layer before you stick it onto front/back of block ...

I have used it 2-3 times now, and never had a slip or leak yet ..... so until I do, I am "sticking" to it!

You asked, we answered. Do it your way.
