Primary gasket replacement
« on: April 26, 2014, 07:56:56 PM »
Putting my primary case back on - Do you guys do anything to the gasket before you put it back on or do you just put it on dry.  I've replaced it a few times, and have put it on dry but was wondering if there was any recommended prep.

Thanks.

I use grease on the big o-ring on the iron barrel models.

I am using the stock AVL primary gasket. Taken the primary off yabout 10 times.
Always grease ( both sides)the gasket to help seal and for ez of removal next time without tearing it up.

Yup - just spent a bit of time getting the old gasket's left-overs off.  Been there a few times so was wondering about the grease.

Ok, cool - Thanks guys.
