As the gaskets are getting scarce, I wanted to make future searches easy for others. So I did a search on here and got 2 results. The first one was exactly what I needed (assuming Nick describes it right) - Paul's method of restoring the VC gaskets. I bought a set from him which have worked well since '12, but since I have motor open, I'm going to run this procedure on my original gaskets. I should thank luigisho too since he is the OP here . . . https://shoforum.com/index.php?threads/oil-on-1-spark-plug.90805/#post-927917 Can someone clear up the "Rislone" step. I assume Nick's referring to their standard Engine Treatment product? I see they make a high-mileage version which I may use in the crankcase once things are back together.
