Replacing ETA gasket

1073 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  mblink
Hi guys, I have a new gasket for where the ETA sits -- how do I take off the old gasket from the intake manifold?-- it is pasted on hard.

Do I have to replace the gasket everytime the ETA is removed? The old one looks good at least visually.

How do I put the new gasket on? Is there a sort of adhesive to apply. Obviously I have never done this.

Thanks for all the help.

Appreciate the help. I will do as suggested. thanks.
yes I was worried I would drop the razor blade or something else into the hole. Same experience here -- it didn't want to come off easy and aligning the gasket also took some time - I had to put one screw through the gasket and start the thread then align other holes looking w/ a flash light. Finally got the 4 screws in but haven't yet tightened them. Is there a recommended torque or just hand tighten them?
