Hi,
Currently I'm replacing all non-metal parts of the starboard exhaust system on my 2002 volvo penta 4.3 GL motor. The little water inlet elbow at the bottom of the exhaust manifold was completely blocked and the hot exhaust burned all the gaskets and rubber connecting belows.
I'm a little confused as to how should I install the gasket between the manifold and the riser ( elbow ). I have the Sierra traditional fiber gasket PN 18-4431 ( green ). The SELOC manual says to coat it with a sealant. The shop that sold the part to me says it should go on dry.
WHAT SHOULD I DO???? and if to use sealant what kind?? how much???
Please help!!!!! Shocked I'm new to boating and repairs Smile

Hello, I would not use anything on the gasket. You risk plugging the water ports. The gasket seales not the glue!
Cool

Mike,
Thanks for the tip. I will put it on dry. Laughing It makes sense.
