    951 Gaskets. Dry or wet?

    Specifically the Exhaust head pipe to Manifold and the Carb to Reed Blocks.
    If wet, what kind of goop?

    Thanks.

    pipe to manifold go dry

    on the carb gaskets i use Permatex Hylomar, cuz it seals very well but will stay sticky and you'll be able to remove them later to clean or change settings/jets. you only need a VERY thin coat on each side.

    always use some sort of exhaust high temp sealer on the exhaust, I like to use a paper thin layer of ultra copper.

    hylomar is ok or anerobic permatex red sealer.

    I don't use sealant on the exhaust except when I'm reusing gaskets. When I do use something it is Hylomar. The 518 is too brittle for me.
