7117 BGB question?

Recommended Posts

mroman59
I put my BGB back together and everything seems to be working fine, however I do have some slight oil leakage I think may be coming from the box. I tighten up the bolts, but maybe I need to tighten them up a little more. Does anyone know if you have to replace that gasket every time you remove that cover or is it supposed to be reusable? Thanks, MR

I would get a gasket from a Simplicity dealer, and replace the old one, and use the blue RTV silicone(theres not wrong with that). I found out the gasket sealer harder to remove than silicone. Trust me, I have a friend who has been a Allis Chalmers mechanic for his whole life and uses the RTV silicone on all of the engines he overhauls.
