Getting the original felt gaskets in Canada from a dealer is tough on a good day. Getting Nomex is...well almost impossible. I can get it on-line but when you add shipping charges, duties, brokerage fees, it adds up fast. A regular felt gasket lands in at close to $50 if I can not find it at a dealer.
I heard that The Nomex was much better but not perfect. I have heard good things about the Cotronics Gasket, and just want this problem solved. It arrived by UPS today. I will do the install on Saturday.
I have two questions:
It comes with an adhesive backing. Does anyone know if it will hold or if it needs to be reinforced further with the 77 Spray Glue?
Also, when I remove the top and loosen the band, will I need new screws when I put it all back together because of the bending?
