3 ways i coud think of, 1, THIN coat of aviation permatex or gascacinch on webs, 19 mm nuts with the red sealing rings[they are out there] or curil sealer under the washers and nuts [like on the vanagon heads] b.t.w early stuff like 40 hp didnt even have the sealing rings. i never saw a leak there unless the main studs were loose /webs/ block worn. thanks dennis valleyvw (n/t) (valleyvw) (05-Jul-2000 22:35:55)

I'll back Mr. Ratto on his method, it's worked for me B4. (n/t) (Tom H.) (05-Jul-2000 23:30:54)

Dont use orings on center two studs and I use red RTV under all the main washers and the head washers inside valve cover area (n/t) (Gary Cooper) (06-Jul-2000 00:09:49)

WHATS the reason you guys dont use o rings on center studs?? never heard that one before. thanks fred (n/t) (fred stanski) (06-Jul-2000 20:52:18)

Because the o rings do allow the case to mate up with shuffle pins installed, BTW thanks everybody for the advise nobody I knew had the answer (n/t) (06-Jul-2000 22:50:57)

I don't do this. I use Wurth Porsche sealer or Loctite 3H and coat threads and washer, then just use a normal VW 17 x 12mm case nut, or a red sealing nut, but with the sealing ring UP away from the case. I hate picking that red seal stuff out of the threads and the reliefs in the case. Sometimes that stuff gets down inside and locks the case shut. Pain in the a$$. My method has never leaked on any of the HP stuff I've built. Jim Ratto
