Time to redo my timing cover gasket due to leaking coolant, used a felpro blue paper one last time with a bit of back rtv smeared on both sides, any suggestions on other gaskets or rtv? Felpro seems so thin, maybe something a bit thicker. Also gonna send the cover to the machine shop to make sure its flat and knick free. Good idea or not good idea? Thankyou

Just make sure the surface is clean. I use the GOLD rtv on mine and never have any problems.

The Felpro gasket, with some black RTV on both sides, is exactly what I use. It should work well, assuming the mating surfaces are clean, and you use the proper bolt tightening sequence.

Also, be sure to let the sealant cure completely before refilling the coolant or running the engine.

Last rebuild I used felpro there also with a small bead of high temp rtv and didn't have any leaks.. But since a blown head gasket (felpro) and a rebuild.. I'm all victor reinz gaskets now... The water pump and timing cover gaskets weren't paper... It's more of a rubber paper. Im pleased to see something different
