Re: Need some 59ab Main Seal info

Thanks, Ken for the info. I've had good results with the rope seals on a few 8ba's that I've built and always soaked them first. The RTV tips make sense also.

Re: test to see if the little pic works

All you have to do is click the "Preview Post" button on the bottom next to "submit reply".
If you don't see your picture in the preview...you did something wrong.
