GASKET FITTING [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 17 April 1928
GASKET FITTING One oftfen hears it suggested that if a cylinder head gasket be given a coat of shellac or varnish on both sides before' it is used or refitted, the likelihood of a water or comjn-ession leak is reduced, That is so, but—and qualification is important—the prob ability is that the gasket "will be worthless when next the cylinder head is removed; a new gasket will be needed, whereas} if the shellac had not been applied to the old one it might well have served again and again. What happens is that the shel lac adhere not only to the gasket, but also fo the cylinder block below and to the cylinder head above, and forms a hard film between the units as 'it- dries; when the cylinder head is next removed and the gasket lifted off, some of - the shellac is left on one unit and some on the other, re sulting in very uneven, surfaces being brought together again subsequently. It is almost impossible to clean off all., the. film from the surfaces, and rarely does a. fresh coating ...
