Rear Water Bypass Joint Gaskets

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I just changed my starter and I'm buying new gaskets tomorrow for the rear water bypass joint. So since the gaskets are made of metal with inside rubber seal, do I still have to add some gasket maker?

Sorry for the silly question but I just want to be sure if the gaskets are all good by them selves.

Thanks

I changed mine doing the same job some time ago. Make sure the mating surfaces are clean and dry, fit new gaskets and make sure the nuts are tightened to the correct torque.

I didn't use any sealer and have had no problems since doing the job.

Nope, those are great gaskets...torque to spec and you should be good to go...They use them in the waterpump on the RX engines....

GASKETS ARE EASY, HOW DO YOU GET THE REAR WATER BY-PASS JOINT REMOVED TO GET AT STATTER BOLTS?

I SPENT DAYS TRYING TO GET TO THE BOLTS THAT HOLD IN THE STARTER, IT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE.
