How do you prepare your gaskets?
« on: January 29, 2014, 12:28:49 pm »
OK, I just thought I would get everyone's thoughts on preparing gaskets for installation.
There seems to be several schools of thought on this.

Some folks:
Install gaskets dry
Soak in pre-mix before installation (to soften the gaskets a little)
Coat case and base gaskets with grease before installation
Coat case and base gaskets with Yama-Bond before installation.

I soak intake gaskets in pre-mix and coat case and base gaskets with a little grease because that is what I was taught at Husqvarna years ago. At that time, the thought at HVA was that a better seal was achieved if the gaskets were softened a little prior to installation.

What do you all do and why?

The grease also allows the gaskets to come off clean down the road at later disassembly
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
