    Default rubber gasket for brake booster

    any ideas on what I could use as a replacement for the gasket (4536 08) that goes between the booster and the firewall for a 205. I was thinking of resuing the old gasket which is still fine, apart from sort of losing its original shape, as I dunno where else to search other htan EAI and ebay as neither have it.

    All else fails, i was going to coat the gasket in the most viscous vaseline/grease I could find and hope that provides a good enough seal for the vacuum.

    This might sound a bit shoddy, but since you don't want the booster going anywhere in a hurry why don't you use the original gasket coated with some kind of sealant like loctite 518? I mean if you aren't planning on repeatedly pulling the booster on and off again should be fine so long as you don't slather it on like crazy

    "Loctite® 515
    Flexible flange sealant for use on rigid machined flanges
    Recommended for coating and re-using gaskets to improve sealing. Approvals: AGA certificate 2590 to690kPa (Gas)"

    - Taken from their own website... sound like the stuff you need

    That gasket is not part of the vacuum system. All it does is stop any "engine smells" from finding their way from the engine bay into the cabin.

    You should have no problems re-using the original gasket.

    I would use some sealant only if the gasket is a bit out of shape.
