Header Gasket Install...looking for tip...just a tip

Any tips on keeping the header gaskets still while installing new headers? Tried grease, didn't work. I don't have any clear epoxy...yet...just wondering if there are any other tricks to it.

I know the headers fit and that's a good thing. Doing it with gaskets...ughhh.

Thanks, Dave

Does that stuff hold them on good during the mounting process? I've had a full yosh and full micron but feel that I jiggle and move these headers around alot more...being handmade n all.

Try some silicone RTV. That should be tacky enough

The black rtv silicone is the ticket. Just a little dab on each and you'll be good to go. It'll quickly burn off and you'll be fine. Also, put the rtv on the header side and place them on the pipes and feed them up. Don't try to glue them to the case. Lay on your back, cross your toes and hold your tongue just right and you'll be all set.

I was successful when I put the gaskets up first and shoved the headers on up and in, I shouldn't say shoved since I had to gingerly place them...I'll be posting a review of this full system from Olson Performance.
