I am rebuilding my 7afe engine currently. Please read the fully before you start poping off answers.
So I bought a evergreen gasket for the seals, gasket, ext.
From what I read on the internet evergreen head gaskets are junk (few people will say they work) but they composite ones.
I have the steel MLS one (you have to look for it becaues most come with composite, came with head bolts to) and have not found any reviews on them
Any thoughts on it? I dont want it to leak as I am using some very expensive oil for it to get the break in and long lasting of the engine. At the same time I need to get this engine out together and bleeding money.
The gaskets looks the same as the every other gasket I look for on the internet.
Also when I look at the repair book (and from what I took out) there is two color valve seals tan brown and a dark sliver looking color one.
In the evergreen kit I have all 16 of them are the same tan brown ones (witch would be Exhaust)
Any thoughts on this?
Any one have any thought on copper spraying the the MLS gasket (few tinny nicks on the block and minor defect on the gasket as the rubber coating) and what should be the thickness of it?
Dad has been mechanic for 35 years working on small mowers to trains (no aircraft) and did owned his own shop. He tells me he rarely sees a gasket in perfect condition and he has never worked with copper spray.
