Important Shop Supplies

    The 1972 VW factory bulletin states that paper gaskets are no longer to be used under the cylinders. You are to use an RTV type sealer in place of the gasket. If you use spacers under the cylinders, install the spacer and RTV the spacer to the cylinder and case.
    Further, the same bulletin states that the head nut washers inside the valve cover area are also to be sealed with the same sealer. Install the RTV to the washer in a good enough layer to seal the washer to the head and to the stud at the same time.
    Many quality engine builders take a small amount of RTV on their fingers and wipe a thin layer on each side of paper gaskets, such as oil strainer, oil pump gasket etc. Make sure you do not clog the machined ring in the oil pump body. It is there to stop full oil pressure from being exerted on the gasket. When the engine is running the suction side of the gears pull oil from this ring back into the intake side of the pump.

     GB 9050  Excellent black heat paint for exhaust. Clean properly (suggest glass bead) paint and heat to cure. If doing a header system and single muffler, it takes about 2 cans. With dual mufflers use 3. After painting, you start the engine and idle it for 1 to 2 minutes. Let cool and then run for 1 to 2 minutes at about 2500 RPM. Let cool and repeat for 4 to 5 minutes. This cures the paint slowly from the head out. Stays on as long or longer than many more expensive brands. This item cannot be shipped as it is an aerosol. SW 2#   $9.45   $6.86   $6.60
