Hey guys i was wondering if it safe to put a thin layer of gasket glue on either side of the head gasket due to minor corostion around the head water ports

If it safe to do i really want to do it so i don't have to worry about water leaking out into pistons or oil thats all i need

tommrow ill post a pic of the corostion

u might know of a way to reinsure this problem dosen't happen

Thx

Do you run corrosion inhibitor in your radiator?

i've never used any thing on falcon head gaskets. they all go on dry exept for AU one that get a small amount ACL hylomar spray.

you should never use any kind of sealer from a tube on head gaskets.
if the corrosion is that bad have it welded up and resurfaced

because it will stop the gasket from sealing properly.

you would take it to an engine machine shop.

by the way if you are changing the head gasketyou should already have taken the head to checked and surfaced befor even giving the slightest thought about putting the head back on.

by the questions you're asking i think maybe this is not a job you should not be trying to do your self

ACL advise against using Holomar on any of there Monotorque head gaskets. It's in there Product Catalogue in some of the first pages were they have details on there hOlomar product and Monotorque headgaskets. Also a peice of paper came with my ACL Race Series Headgasket that said not to use anything on it.

I presume you used an aftermarket gasket then? Not a genuine Ford AU headgasket. Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to apply some Holomar to a genuine Ford AU head gasket as they are those full metal ones. But you shouldn't have any issues if you didn't.

Usually head gaskets have their own sealant on them already and most manufacturers recommend against using aftermarket sealants on head gaskets.

when i did my hg the paper that came with gasket said that if you use gasket goo of any kind on the acl you have to retorque the head bolts.

i won't bother as i'm replaceing the engine soon.
