New Clutch?
Written by goldwingman40 on 3/28/2012 at 09:00 pm

Put that gasket on a good clean surface dry. That gasket swells with many of the
gasket sealers. I tryed Permatex high tack gasket sealer and it swelled right
after I sprayed it. I would order 2 gaskets so you have a spare if you have a
problem and don't have to wait to get another.

"melted " by the Permatex. Cleaned and reassembled with new gasket and so far
looks ok .
