Inlet manifold and thermostat question

Post by Eltoon » Tue Sep 15, 2020 2:58 pm

Hey, SJ413: Should I use gasket sealant on the inlet manifold, or just the gasket itself? Same question for the thermostat? Bought a thermostat and it didn't come with a gasket which surprised me!

Cheers!

Just the gaskets. No need for sealant.

Just ensure all the old gasket is removed from the mating faces before refitting the new.
