    Hi folks I need some help.
    I pulled the 90 degree oil filter adapter off my 1971 318. Do I need to order a new paper gasket or can I just RTV it and slap it back on?

    Thanks for the time and advice.

    I get away with using RTV for a lot of things, but I would have to recommend trying to get some gasket material and make a new one.
    Unless you have a gasket available that is.

    (Then coat it with a light coat of RTV and put it together.) :)

    You can buy a gasket kit for those adapters. Just Google for it, I think I bought mine from Mancini Racing.

    buy the kit. It's actually 3 gaskets and the large gasket is very thick.

    Dang..

    Well I went and bought a sheet of cork and am just gonna make the gaskets.
    3 Gaskets? I count 2.
    A large thick one from adapter to block and a smaller one from bolt to adapter.
    What gasket am i missing?
    Normaly I would order the correct parts but the weather is calling for two feet of snow and I gotta move this car out of the drive way so I can get the boat on the lawn... dont wanna piss of the plow guy this early in the season....


    Getting that gasket off the block is proovi g tricky.
    I bought gasket remover and it says "Non toxic, Low odor, Voc complaint" What the hell? frickin California....

    Thanks for the input guys, Ill let you know if I get a leak.

    Buy a copper washer or the like for the big bolt. That's the one you're missing.

    I wouldn't worry about a leak as much as I would taking out a crankshaft because the inner gasket to block gasket on the bolt is incorrect and unfiltered dirt gets in a bearing!! Just my .02 from experience!
    Oh yea, mine was only a 340

    Anyone got a torque value on the large oil filter adapter bolt?

    I did not see an inner gasket?
    would that have been around the small hole in the center?
    it looks like mine was just a metal on metal seal?
    guess I better take a closer look.

    Thanks again.

    I think its 35. The gasket is a mofo to get off, scrape it and make sure you get it all. I made my gasket out of the black roll and salvaged the bolt gasket. It was rigid like copper.

    sorry what is the "black roll"?

    The cork I bought is Mr. Gasket brand and is 1/16" thick, Dose this sound Ok?
    I just need the car to move under its own power for a day then I can order the right parts and redo it.. Thank god its on the passanger side...

    Thanks for all the time and advice.

    i think I got a sheet of rubber gasket material but Im having trouble locating it.

    I looked under the car and at both sealing surfaces and I see no sign of any inner gasket..?

    See the black color of the large gasket? That's the material I made, one out of. I think its called fiber gasket material. Auto zone or oreilly. Carries it.
