Re: Wire vs lock washers

Re: tilloston gasket seepage

I had the same problem with a Tillotson. A heavy coat of of Copper Coat sealant on both sides of the gasket and assembled while still tacky solved the problem. It’s been dry now for several years.

Re: 2nd appeal for modern Rubelite Red Paint code
