Zbadboy Posted March 29, 2012 Report Share Posted March 29, 2012 I could use some suggestions on ways to prevent intake gaskets from leaking air and also the intake bolts. I just did my first top end/cool head and built a leak down tester. when i went to do my first leak down test i discovered my intake boots had a rip on each side(i had no idea about this so the leak-down test already paid for itself here), so i replaced them with new ones. Now i am going for leak down test number 2, i basically sprayed Windex all over the motor and took it to 6lbs pressure, the Windex works awesomely but all i can see is i have a small air leak around one spark plug and the air leaks around my intake gaskets and intake bolt holes everything else looks to be solid at this point. I am using all new stuff new intake boots and gaskets. So i guess i am wondering what is the best way to plug these leaks? i have a few ideas but before i get started i thought i would through it out hear because i am sure others have faced this. Any advise or remedies would be greatly appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
