Sound deadning

Has anyone used Acoustishield and what do you think of it? Is there anything else out there that would look like the original material? I don't mind cutting to fit if I can find it. Thanks in advance.

Re: Head Gasket for 21 stud

I have aluminum heads and never thought about the reaction with copper. Why would you use grease on the composite. Never found a need on any motors we have already done.

Head bolt sealant

What have you guys found to be the best sealant for the head bolts to block on a 21 stud. I tried thread sealant paste but it didn't work. Thx and Happy New Year

36 Transmition bearings

Just wondering if anyone has used a sealed bearing for the input shaft and not used the wick seal? I would think the oil drain hole would have to be sealed. Stay safe and healthy.
