Wow! that 'dates' you man! I thought I was the last one left on earth that knew what that was!!!


I've been using that "Right Stuff" rtv from permatex.. on just about everything that is considered a 'permanent' type joint..
Front timing cover, diff covers.... stuff that normally would not be opened up too often.. Should make a good seal to hold the cereal box in place!

That may work. I know it works for no pressure applications, but how about 35PSI?

good question!
Never had the lid off my intake, what does Cummins use besides a gasket? surely some sort of sealer too??
I know that 'right stuff' when I gooped some on the battery, cured out to a almost indestructible blob!.. grabby as hell!

All that is there is just a gasket. If you do pull it DO NOT over torque the bolts. They strip quite easily!!! I am going to see if I can find the torque spec for them.
edit: I believe the torque value is maximum 18 lbft. That is what it looks like if you check any of the shop manuals in the Downloads section.

The torque for the intake cover bolts is 18 inch pounds...DAMHIKT!

The Autometer Boost guage directions say torque to no more than 20 pounds but I will be happy with 18 pounds if it seals properly.
Also where I installed the adapter connector in cover there was no gasket between the adapter and cover in the kit which makes me wonder about Boost loss. Maybe I should just remove the cover plate and clean it up, add a new gasket with sealer then I will know for it is sealed. Just one more issue, The directions for the Pyrometer says for for optimal readings, ground gague to the engine, and that's the problem.
The ground wire is very small guage so I am covering it with wire loom which will protect and dress it up a bit. I can not find an easy accessible place on the block to attach the ground wire, so my thoughts are, while the cover plate is off I will drill a small hole in it and install a small bolt with threads sticking up from the cover and weld it from both sides to hold it secure and seal it to prevent leakage, doing this will give me a safe place to attach the necessary ground wire.

The adapter you have just replaces a bolt, correct? A gasket and some sealer may be needed, but test for leaks first. Stranger things have happened!

My apologies, it is 18 foot pounds for the torque of the intake plenum bolts.

I remember the cereal boxes too. Just a common practice for teenagers with no cash. Haha the memories with my 51 Ford Victoria, flat head v8 [you ever change a water pump on one] 3 on the tree with overdrive switch under the gas pedal with Blue cat's eyes in the tail lights. I'd sure like to have that little Ford in my garage today.
