Re: red gasket maker ok with rubber pan gasket?

what does it say on the packaging?

you also need to add a dab of rtv at each end of the rms.

how far from an autoparts store do you live where you cant just go and get another can/tube of gasket maker?

yeah doing the RMS is not the problem. i just wanted to know if red will be ok. it says oil pans, but not if its for cork or rubber.

isnt gasket maker used by itself without a gasket or seal. i use a thin layer rtv on rubber gaskets.

Only if your Jeep is Red, that would look tacky with any other color.

You might try a hobby store for the brass punch.

If you go to a hobbie store or good hardware store just get a brass rod about 1/4" dia. +/- works great.....SANTA

It does not have to be a punch at all you will be just tapping on it anyway. With the brass rod you can cut it to any length you want and it works great.....SANTA

You can use aluminum - that's what came with my universal RMS kit in the '80's. And if you are using the rubber pan gasket, just dab the corners of the seal and front timing cover. The gasket can do all the rest.

Scraping off all the old paper gasket - that's the tough item.
