    What are you using around the water jackets with the copper head gaskets?

    I learned to use a thin coat of the hi temp silicone over 30 years ago when I worked for Gale Banks.

    Receiver grooves? Of course not.
    Silicone is recommmended for sealing around water ports. High temp. Ultra black is my fav.
    Receiver grooves SHOULD be there.
    Let the arguing begin.
    Now, everyone will add the "I have not run receiver grooves and never had a problem".
    To that I will say "I have nailed more than 1 bar tramp without a rubber and never had a problem." That don't make it right.

    I always liked using loctite 518 for copper gaskets. Never had a water leaking problem and it's alot easier to get the head back off than when i used silicone. Now about these bar tramps, we need pictures. lol
