Clean and Dry
It’s no secret that Fel-Pro® gaskets offer the most reliable seal for any repair job. Proper installation is the key to long service life, as installation practices are changing rapidly as gasket designs advance. In the past, it was not uncommon to coat a gasket with sealers or adhesives before installing it; today, Fel-Pro offers many gasket designs with advanced leak sealing technologies built directly into the gasket. With these modern gaskets, RTV or other sealers can actually hinder the gasket’s ability to form a reliable seal, causing leaks.
