    So, if you are reusing a MHG or prefer brake quiet or copper sealer on a new gasket, remove the factory coating first. There isn't anything wrong with using the sprays after that.

    Good info though.

    The factory coating of Viton should be superior to any spray on sealer hands down. Why would you take that off?

    I agree. I used the copper spray when I reused my MHG. Some people might prefer one of the sprays over the factory coating if they couldn't get good surface finishes and need to fill in deeper machine grooves.

    well im not gonna get into it with jdub again cause last i got banned for a week for stating my opinion

    but i used metal gasket sealer on my cometic mhg 8 months ago and nothing has happened yet ran 18 psi on a 60-1 for 3 months racing it 4 times a week and it still has no problems i dont see how it can screw anything up honestly

    it is a spray on glue thats MADE for metal gaskets it was a copper spray, but to each their own i will not say anymore as i will prolly get banned again

    You mean this thread:

    The one where SupraCentral removed your obscenities & insults in post #25...the one where SupraCentral rolled it back for the same reasons in Post #42 in an effort to keep it civil.

    You were not banned for expressing your opinion...nice try, but IMO you were banned for the reasons above. You can do as you wish...as I said then, and still say now, you're going affect the factory coating with chemicals that have an adverse effect. I'm sorry, but an emotional arguement based on hearsay doesn't work with me.
    I will no longer respond to tech questions via PM. If you have a question, put it on the forum so everyone benefits from the answer.

    Many people don't lock their doors at night, for years at a time. Therefore, it is ok to leave them unlocked all time.

    Lol at your post #19 on that link John. I think it's like the second sentence or third. I don't think anyone caught it, unless it was a deleted post.
