I dont know what product you are using BUT most sealing paste or glue type material is to be used with the correct gasket, giving an extra layer of protection

With orings being cheap, and liable to fail after you have touched it~ replacement is wise- In my opinion

thanks tim! ill order the coolant pipe joint gasket and o ring. this is the fourth order from wsternhonda i am going to make and i pay $15 in shipping every time, this is really adding up haha. I hope i wont be needing any more parts. now this brings up another question, can i put the head back on without putting the pipe back on? or can i just put the head on and then put the pipe on when the gasket comes?

On your way home buy a tub and k-1.


Soap and water just ain't going to cut the grease I don't care what the Dawn bottle says.

Lightly lube those o-rings (#15 above) with a little SILICONE lube and not an oil based grease or oil when you reinstall them and make sure you use NEW O-rings.


They can easily be pinched or rolled/twisted in this application and cause a leak. You will only find this out AFTER you start the bike up and it gets warm.


Make sure the mating parts are clean. Inspect closely after you install.

If you have nowhere to safely and properly clean the heads- take them to a machine shop!
They have a dunk tank filled with solvent that will return the parts looking brand new

Can also bead blast parts as needed to freshen surfaces ie: remove stuck-on gasket material

When you cant diy- let a PRO do it!

okay, should i use the silicone lube for all the o rings on the water pump cover too? hmmm, is k 1 or any other solvent save in valve stem seals? also i found this on another forum, what y'all think?

"It seems best to CAREFULLY chase any and all threads to be sure at reassembly. I have seen head bolt and stud holes filled with junk especially at a head gasket change since the gasket was compromised it is possible for minute amounts of coolant and moisture to migrate the entire length of the bolt/stud with the many heat cycles before total gasket failure.. Engine oil and coolant can do the same on any exposed fastener."

i got both heads clean!!All i used was hot running water, ajax dish soap and 3 mini brushes. it took me a few hours, they are not factory new, but they are soooooooooo much cleaner than before. I got the hot running water and scrubbed it down with soap and a nylon mini bush. i did this for a while until i thought it was time to use the brass brush. after that i finally used the stainless steel mini brush and extra soap and voila!! not bad eh? i also made sure to keep the gaskets on so i would not accidentally scratch the mating surfaces. now to take the gaskets off and check for warpage, if so ill resurface them with my 800 grit sandpaper, then 1000. after ill sand the block and pop the heads back on!!
