I'm in the process of changing out ride plates ( replacing with a Jim's plate used bought from this site ) man what a pain getting it free from all the adhesive that was stuck to the factory plate but anyway i had to open the Jim's plate to replace the 2 cooling nipples when i did i found the old gasket to be a pain to remove as if it was glued on -- is it supposed to be ? plus inside i found everything covered in a thin white powder residue -- is that normal ? plus what is a good adhesive to use when putting the new plate on ( after i get all the old adhesive off ) -- it seems like the factory used a half gal. of the stuff !
