I have 48 WD allis and the intake and exhaust manafold keeps burning out the gaskets. Is there a product out there to help seal the new ones. Thanks for any help. TR

I used muffler patch paste on both the head and the manifold. Trowel it on nice and thick and let it dry overnight. Next morning use that big file Brian mention to get it flat. Repeat as needed to get a good flat surface. install the manifold in the normal manner. My cheap patch has lasted five years. Just blew out the front exhaust gasket this winter so may have to repeat the patch process myself.

From my experience, it seems the front exhaust port always seems to be the first to "blow out". I have found that by carefully filing across all the manifold ports with a very large flat file one can get them all even so that they seal much better. If the manifold is really bad, a good machine shop can mill the surfaces smooth and level.

Is it the manifold or the head that is causing the trouble. If it's the head there are two ways to fix it , one take it to machine shop have the pits shaved off. Two they do make a product that will seal it between gasket and head, I have used it between gasket and manifold with some sucess. can't tell you the name or # but have to go to cat dealer to get it. It will cost about 80.?????for a pint of it .

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
