    951 Base gasket install Grease or NO grease?

    I never use any grease, but I was advised to put a little grease on the
    base gasket.

    What do you all use?

    I am finishing my 2000rx willer cases and just want it wright.

    Also should I time it? What is the best way?

    I have a whole new MOTOR from the original one.

    Very light coat of Three Bond 1211 on both sides is my preference in engine building.

    So after I find the correct base gasket apply a thin coat of 1211 to each side of the gasket and put the motor togethere?

    nothing wrong with putting it on dry.
    Never really thought of using 1211 bond. I use it on the cases and other stuff.

    Rotax builds them dry, but uses the engine paint as a sealer too. If you have an old engine that has never been disassembled you will see seepage places, just like the gasket on Al's GSX. Over time it will seep, so that's why I use 1211, it's a permanent seal that prevents the gaskets from deteriorating. Plus it is a snap to clean if ever disassembled again.

    I have the 1211 and is a easy thing to do.

    I think it is insurance on a blown gasket too!

    Any input on what to use for a ring compressor?
    My fingernails hurt.

    Get someone to hold the cylinder while you squeeze the rings with your fingers. Isn't Robert hanging out there? The trick is getting the gap centered at the pin. Squeeze 90 degrees from the pin, with your thumb and forfinger. If you get it right the piston will slide right in. don't force it, just makes it harder.
