Quick question about radiator gasket

Postby kjoiner » Mon Sep 02, 2013 11:57 am


I'm getting ready to install a new radiator and the gasket is cork but also has rubber on it as well. Is there any particular side that should go on the casting? Either way, I'm planning to use Indian Head gasket shellac. Should I put it on both sides?

Kyle, I just put a radiator back on using Indian Head on both sides of the gasket and didn't have a drop leak out.
