Air cleaner seal
« on: May 14, 2018, 12:19:24 PM »
Does any one have any recommendations on what to use to attach the foam seal for the air cleaner to the hood?
Also looking for recommendations on getting the factory water pump rebuilt,
thanks in advance.

First confirm that you have the proper shorter foam seal compared to the taller GT350 and then use contact adhesive to adhere to the bottom side of hood . Brush on both surfaces then wait a couple minutes for it to tack up before you stick it together. Yellow is what they typically used however not much if any showed unlike the other areas on the car it was used at.

we used the 3M yellow glue (aka gorilla snot) you van purchase at any local auto parts store

clean both surfaces, hood area and gasket

dont over do on the glue for two reasons

1 it will seep out all over

2 it will eat up the rubber gasket

make sure of placement, when its on it is on

light on both sides, let the glue dry slightly

then apply pressure

good luck

These cars are meant to be driven, so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all clean. Carroll Shelby
