Replacing the Head Gasket - Sealant?
After cleaning up the front cylinder on Orleans, I still wasn't sure about the head gasket and decided to replace it anyway. MIght as well do it while I've got access. There seem to be a couple of gasket sealants "out there", however, and I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction (which might include steering away altogether). There's the red RTV sealant which appears really to be a gasket maker (like for an oil pan); then there's some blue stuff, which seems more sealant-y. And then there's just the "coat it with oil, put it where it's supposed to go, and put the cover back on the cylinder." Anyone have suggestions?
