Decided to glue on this gasket to the reverse rotation Flowkooler water pump. Since this gasket does not exist outside of buying this pump, gluing to the pump is much more ideal than the cover. Of course, I used the best RTV on the market.
Not the worst idea, considering that myself. My first pump from RA beat and destroyed the gasket during shipping, was not impressed. Make me a spare and I will buy it from you.I installed my gasket the same way, but used Permatex Ultra Black.
Since I own (4) of these reverse rotation pumps, I also tried to buy a couple gaskets to keep as spares. Nope! A/C Delco has discontinued them, and Fel-Pro has also discontinued them. I have a couple gaskets that were in bad shape that I will use as templates to make my own, using universal "square sheet" gasket making material.
