    Changing oil breather pipe gasket

    Couple of quick questions:

    When changing the gasket on the front oil breather pipe, do you need to use any gasket sealant or anything like that?

    Is there a specified torque setting when tightening the 2 bolts after changing the gasket?

    Thanks!

    Hey up Dave,

    I didn't use any sealant and didn't talk it either but im sure someone on here will tell you the proper way of doing it. Let me know if you need a hand.

    i always use some instant gasket just to be on safe side

    whilst ur at it, replace the bolts with studs then it makes fitting/removal so much easier next time as u can locate the pipe onto the block with the studs then just whack the nuts on. regular bog standard M8x1.25 size
