Rutland Gaskets

My old felt gasket is just about gone ( my second one ) I have a bit of a leak from 12 to 4 o'clock and have tried everything recomended here. Now regarding the Rutland, do I put in on bottom half only, and do I pre heat it in the oven for a short time?
Thanks for any help.
Bon Appetit,

    I put it only on the bottom, and there is no need to pre-heat it. It won't shrink like the nomex does.
  • What Fidel said. Works great.
  • Willie,
    I followed the details from the Naked Whiz's site on the Rutland install ( and was successful with one exception.
    Over time and a bunch of high temp pizza cooks the gasket is fine but the adhesive is failing and I will probably re-glue with automotive high temp gasket cement.
    If you do high temp you might want to start with a different adhesive.
    By the way I think we might be related.

    I've put on Rutland with permatex in late spring and this stuff is the real deal. I don't see it wearing out for very very long time. And I do pizza's high temp every week.
