Need help with stopping a Vacume LEak
I start my quest today to find a washer that won't bend. My 4.2., 4.0 head, MPI engine has not slowed down in 600 miles. I have a vacume leak and I figure that it is comming from the intake manifold. The wahsers I had used to hold the intake and exaust manifolds on have deflected and cupped with the torque of the bolts. My guess is that this is part of the problem
???Is it OK to use a hi temp rtv or other sealant on the manifold gasket???
also, Where the heck do you find 3/15" or 14" washers. I'm planning to visit some specialty hardware stores this morning, but plan on visiting some of the local welding shops to pick up some scrap 1/4" to make my own if I can't find anything. I checked all of the big names, Home Depot, Lowes in town and found nothing, but that wasn't a suprise.
Thanks in advance.
