On my Yanmar
4JH57 I am checking the exhaust
elbows and noticed some leakage between the gasket
and the engine
block. I'll replace the gasket
once I get them shipped. In the meantime I scraped the gasket and block clean. Should I smear a thin layer of muffler sealant
, like Permatex 80335 Muffler
and Tailpipe Sealer, to improve the seal? Or, is this just overkill?
