Anneal new head gasket?

Post by Ro55 » Wed Jul 31, 2019 8:28 am

Hi guys,

Do I have to anneal a brand new copper head gasket? Or do I use it as is?

Thanks

Just use it as it is, it will have been made of half hard copper, you only need to anneal when it’s been used and has become hard from being compressed.

Thanks for the welcome, the forum has been really helpful. I'm on the Garden Route in Wilderness.

Cheers

That’s a nice part of the country African Imp is west along the cost from you in Hout Bay. Do you know him? He is very enthusiastic about Seagulls.

Yeah it's beautiful down here. I don't know him yet, but I'm sure we'll meet in the future.
