Using latest valley gasket..

All the threads on the board indicate that hylomar and the right stuff need to be used in conjunction with the gasket. I was curious if that only applies to the old style because the company I ordered it from just said slap it on and bolt it down. If this is wrong where do I need to apply what? thanx

Apply right stuff on the corners of the end seals. Also, buy new end clamps or make sure the ones you have are bent in such a manner as to apply adequate pressure.

Sounds easy enough. thank you. No more sealing around the water inlets or whatever?

In my experience, the techs never did that with the new valley gaskets. Make sure to put sealant on the bolt threads or use the updated bolts.

Yeah, the techs replace the end clamps, bolts, gasket, end seals and put a liberal amt of right stuff at the four corners where the end seals meet the heads.

It is easy to understand why there is confusion because the manual says to apply hylomar to all of the surfaces but the guys are right, just do the corners.

Will do. I don't have the updated bolts but I'll use thread sealer. Thanks for the help.

Oh, I forgot, some of the techs spray that red loc-tite gasket sealer on the gasket where it meets the heads and intake. It isn't 100% necessary, but its a good idea. Don't spread right stuff over this portion though.

Did i read right that a 1/2 inch bolt is supposed to be torqued to 90nm or 65 pounds per foot/ 760 pounds inch? Seems awfully tight for intake manifold bolts. By the way is there a way to tell if one has the updated bolts?

I thought it was closer to 35 or 40 lb/ft. I am not sure about the updated bolts for the intake..
