Cylinders from millenium
Just got a cylinder back from millenium. Looks great but I'm curious about one thing.
I thought I came across a thread some time ago saying you should put yamabond or 1211 on the bottom of the repaired cylinder. Something involving the repair process can open up areas on the cylinder for water to enter.
I've been searching all morning and can't find the thread so here I ask you all.
If you have used a repaired cylinder from millenium or us chrome or any of the others did you seal the bottom of the cylinder with anything other then the base gasket of course??

All I used was a new base gasket as well.
I have seen a reputable builder reuse gaskets, but it was with 1211 and strictly on his own equipment. I asked him about this and he replied that he had not had any issues before.
My feeling on it is that if given the choice, he would have used a new one. He did not use one because we were at a race site, and he did not have one.

osidebill made the post, most of the cylinders pit right under the exhaust side on the bottom of the cylinder. They use 1211 and I have done this with my last one. Some are more serious the others I have notice from the couple I had done.

I made a post a while back and have received confirmation that this is a common occurrence with replated jugs. There are varying repair solutions. Some epoxy the pits to close them up so they are near flat then add sealer. And some just go with the sealer. I guess it depends on the size of the pitting. Make a common sense judgment call. You can find my post here.
