blank gasket material for leaving out thermostat
So trying to do a flush and just leave the thermostat out, since our thermostat elbow doesn't use a regular paper composite gasket, has anyone just gone and bought some Felpro gasket paper and cut out a template to use while doing an engine flush? It should work...? I think removing the knock sensors might be good to do as well. Do you have to add more thread compound to the knock sensors after you remove them?
