valve cover gaskets

Post by TwoTone Trike »



I just bought a set of used chrome valve covers. The manual calls for Three Bond 1521. The parts houses haven't heard of it. The valve covers that I took off and the chrome ones I bought both looked like they had Indian head gasket sealer on them. Is this what I need to use? Thanks in advance for any help. Tony

Thanks, I just googled it myself. $13.65 on Amazon and free shipping. When you can't find it locally you can almost always find it on the internet.

Hi,

do you know if the valve cover gaskets are the same in all yearmodels? I looked for the Athena gaskets, and they sell them for 1988 - 1996 -models. The part number is S410210015032.

So apparently the gaskets change for 1997 - 2000 -models, but I'm just asking to be sure.

Ok, thank you for your reply! One store here in Finland sells them 4,99 € /pcs. It's kind of a car- and motorcycle part store, that sells everything else too (Motonet). They don't tell any yearmodels for this gasket, but they give that Athena part number (which refers to yearmodels 1988-1996).

But because they are that cheap, I will order them anyway.
