Yup, there's no adhesive or tape or anything on the replacement gasket I received from Atlanta. Bruce was very kind to send the gasket length for XL, since I did not specify which size cooker I was trying to fix until after they mailed out the replacement. Now, I've gotta find some acetone and Super 77 spray
Grandpas Grub et al, here are the shots of the new gasket roll:
See? Sans adhesive
It looks like a big white roll of felt. I hope that I can install it correctly and cure it before the weekend. I'll have the final shots after I can find those little plastic thingys which hold the spring bands shut...
