Hey guys,

I'm putting the head back on the Polaris Indy and have a new gasket to use. I was wondering if I should
put a thin coat of anti seize on it or not. I spent a while getting the old gasket off and when working the trade (pipefitter) we put anti seize on everything. It seems like this may be just one of those situations. Pros or cons?

I doubt that the anti seize would cause a problem, but thought I'd ask the forum. If I ever take the head back off, the anti seize would sure make it easier and no scraping.

thanks,

david

do not anti seize the gasket if thats what you are meaning, the bolts maybe but i have never had a problem with the head boltes on a 2 stroke, as long as both surfaces are clean the new gasket will seal very good

No anti-seize. You want that gasket to stick and seal. With the constant pressure/vacuum of the combustion process next to the pressure of the cooling system, I would think the anti-seize would get replaced with either gas or water and cause a leak.
