Re: Perkins 4108 Vibrations At Tick-Over

Theres a 3-M product for rubber door gaskets ECT. we always called Yellow Gorilla Snot ! LOL that us sneaky old diesel mechs always use on perks and Leymans,spreads out easy and thin and will save gaskets from over tighting,and will stop those darn leaks easy! I keep a couple of tubes on hand always. get it at any good auto parts store.easy to store (small 4 in tubes) will stop water leaks,oil leaks ect when used for gasket sealing. just a thought.

Re: Perkins 4108 Vibrations At Tick-Over

Permatex has a spray gasket sealer (Red) that gets very tacky and allows one to place the gasket then the cover. Will not squeeze out.

Nice pictures but you have given most of us "Access envy"
