Which trans gasket?
« on: June 30, 2008, 04:37:45 AM »

Hello all - my TF999 needs to be serviced finally.  I have just broke a few thousand miles on it after the build-up.  Which gasket do I use?  What are the opinions on cork vs rubber?

   I have found that the rubber gaskets always need to be retightened after a couple of days, sometimes 2-3 times before they settle and completely seal. Cork is the way to go with a little smear of silicone, just enough to adhere and not ooze into the trans. As of lately, I have been using 3M super 77 adhesive spray with great success. jimmyray682008-06-30 13:48:25

I have used the black gaskets NAPA have in their kits with Permatex's High Tack adhesive or 3M weatherstripping glue.

Use High Tack.  Don't use the glue.
 
Little trick.  Get some thread and tie it through the pan holes.  I have been told, with neoprene gaskets, you should not use any adhesives or sealers unless there is a problem. 
 
Put your bolts on with a 1/4 drive socket so you don't over torque.  Over torquing can cause the pan to leak too.

I use the gasket that comes with the trans kit, and apply black silicone sealant on both sides of the gasket.  I've never had leaks and have not had the need to retighten.
