Gaskets for final drives.

Postby Clemsonfor » Wed Aug 19, 2020 8:41 pm

I need to change the oil in my final drives. This is part of my maintenance on this new to me tractor so I know what was done when.

I'm cheap and thinking of cutting my own. I have more time than money and buying the material I will have some left for other gaskets for other stuff . TSC I noticed had cork in 1/8" and 1/16 sizes I believe. What thickness should these gaskets be? I am resisting my urge to just RTV it like I do on most of my other stuff including my other tractor I use. Since this is old school I thought I'd go old school and use an actual gasket.

Or since I am making them should I get a different material. The blue paper or grey rubberized stuff?

Use the cork, 1/16" should be fine, just be sure your pans are good and flat.
