best way of sealing water cooled kit?

🇮🇹💦 Of the Loin /

so i just found out water is leaking into my cylinder once it gets warmed up, causing my bike to run at like 5mph and really rich sounding.

what is the best way to seal this shit good? i was just going to motoseal grey on top of my gasket but is there a better option? and no, I cant buy another gasket for this kit, i have to mak emy own.

blue rtv.

Re: best way of sealing water cooled kit?

Wait, what kit? Every kit I have experienced (both on the aprilia and the puch) have o-rings to seal the head (inside and out) and 4 small o-rings for the studs.

Dose yours have paper gaskets? I say smear the hell out of both sides of the gaskets with red RTV let it setup and then slap it back together. Another coat or black (non hardening or red rtv around the outside probably won't hurt either

no its a vespa water cooled setup. Im so close to giving up on it haha.

I wish it had o rings paz, even my moby air cooled setup has (had now ) an o-ring.

Re: best way of sealing water cooled kit?

Have you tried head gasket shellac? I've not yet messed with any H2o setups but it works great on base and head gaskets...

Re: best way of sealing water cooled kit?

i think i can experiment with this i have an old water cooler engine that leaks like crap. im gonna try to adapt o rings to it. i will try to post some updates.

Re: best way of sealing water cooled kit?

rtv or gascacinch will seal that up well

any non-hardening gasketmaker
