Am I going to have to re-do this?

Recommended Posts

I just replaced the oil pan on a 16 HP Briggs. I used the blue Permatex gasket glue, no gasket. Then I read it should not be used on gas related stuff. Should I take it back apart and use another type of gasket maker on it??

I think they mean anything that is related to sealing gasoline related areas as gaso is a solvent of somewhat and that paticular variety of Permatex might might not get along with it.

Not sure which Briggs 16 you have but some need the gasket to control end thrust on the crank. Just an FYI. I have never seen RTV used as a gasket solely and work. By that I mean it always leaks later.

I got thinking about this yesterday. I had the transfer case out of our '99 Silverado a year ago for repair, and they are ALL put together with blue Permatex. No gaskets there anywhere, none of them. You'll be fine.
