    Here's a suggestion .....

    Measure the diameter (D) of the seal.

    Divide the diameter (D) by 2 to get the radius (R).

    The seal length is the circumference of the seal diameter, which is equal to 2 (Pi)R.

    Pi = 3.14159, call it 3.14

    2(Pi) = 6.28.

    Multiply 6.28 x R to get your min. seal length.

    Add a couple inches for shrinkage in the dryer, trimming, etc.

    How's dat?

    I used 94 inches when I did mine, along with about a 1/2 tube of Permatex Ultra Copper.
