Cologne rocker covers

Post by PeteS » Thu Aug 08, 2019 12:54 pm

I am renovating my cologne rocker covers....it's many years since I have replaced cork gaskets ....any tips or recommendations regarding any sealants to use or are they best fitted without?
Thanks
Pete

I remember the usual recommendation is just a smear of grease both sides. The cork ones will settle over time so need checking and gentle tightening down at times.

Spray Adhesive on the cleaned covers.
Or, contact adhesive.
Then press the gaskets into place using the bolts through the top holes to keep the gaskets in position till the glue sets.
It stops the gaskets creeping and if they not perfectly flat it holds the gasket in place.

I have a pair of Used Chromed covers, and a set of NEW covers in original Ford grey/
