Re: Head Gasket weeping

the reason I did not do it right away was, if nobody is interested why
bother?...but you are..
Before installing the head gasket put a thin bid of Loctite 819 on both
sides of the gasket, DON'T OVERDO it.....if you follow all other
instruction (installing the head gasket), it will not leak...
The Loctite stuff was developed by Rolls Royce and used to be called
Hylomar, apparently it was bought out by Loctite.
I used the Hylomar while working on engine development and on many, many
rebuilt, always worked...I belive this procedure was also re commanded by
VW Porsche magazine (European Car)
