    Default Sump gaskets

    Got my sump today (thanks Cam) Xu10 with trap door. What way do I go regarding the gasket as I'm using a 15mm spacer as well.

    Do I get two pre fab gaskets - one for the spacer and one for the sump?
    Do I just use a gasket goo / silicone?

    Thanks

    I use threebond - forget the exact type but just consult their charts.

    Use a good quality gasket in a tube for the top side of the sump ladder.

    I have never worked on a XU10 block, is it drilled and tapped for the sump ladder retaining bolts?

    Only use the gasket between the sump and the ladder.

    Gasket is just for the steel sump, just use silicone or better still the anaerobic sealing compound.

    No such thing as a gasket on the alloy sumps. Use ThreeBond 1211. Don't use gasket goo, guttering strength silicone or that black crap that others use. Just put a smear of 1211 on each of the four faces and bring them together when tacky. If you ever have to pull it apart you'll appreciate it even more.

    Thanks everyone, I'll be going the threebond 1211. I'll trace some down today.

    dont speak evil of silastic! my favourite tool of the trade behind q-bond, big hammers and excessive force
    The wrong oil is better than no oil at all.
