Gaskets and sealants

Page list

Suggested sealing material

Permatex non-hardening #2

Suggest use same gasket sealant for paper gasket between gearbox rear face and alloy extension.

 

Gasket versions

Ensure on later Moss gearboxes that the rear paper gasket has holes in all the right places for oil flow from the case to the extension and back to the case. The gasket provided in a gearbox gasket kit I bought had no hole for the oil to flow to the rear extension from the oil dam added to later XK models.
