Sorry...my bad. I just seen it was leaking into my crankcase n thought that's what they had. Tore it apart n realized it was a gasket they had. Can't I just use permatex for a gasket on that side of the block?

Maybe a coat of a good sealant will do the job. I've always made a gasket AND then put a heavy coated of Permatex(or equal) on the block side . . . never had one leak that way. I figure that the gasket will help with any irregularities in the surfaces of those old castings. Kinda like wearing both a belt and suspenders, it can't hurt.

Side note: You may want to re-torque the block nuts after the engine has run for a couple hours, they tend to loosen up a bit.

Olson's makes good composite head gaskets but as far as I know, they don't make the one for the block to crankcase connection. It can just be made out of a good grade of medium/heavy gasket paper.

Hi

I recently fully rebuilt the engine on my Titan. I purchased a roll of heavy-duty gasket paper from my local motor factors, and custom made a gasket to fit between the block and the crankcase.

I simply sealed the gasket on both sides with a generous smear of normal clear silicone and did up the nuts nice and tight. I've used silicone sealer on other applications (e.g. Fordson radiators) and never had any problems.

Hope this helps, Roger

My red hi-temp silicone is sometimes visible when im done, I catch some hell about that from fellow collectors because ultimately the purists insist that two mating surfaces should be corrected to only need factory type gasketing to seal.
I say life is short, to each his own.

My liberal use of PTFE tape will be sure to get the purists' blood boiling then! I reckon our forefathers would have given their eye teeth for modern sealing materials and treatments; how they ever got asbestos string to seal pipe unions I'll never know!

The '19 Titan I had was losing water between the block and case too.
I rolled the engine over until the pistons were at the top of the stroke, got the cylinder block slung from a hoist, unbolted the block and slid it back enough to get at the gasket.
I made a new gasket of 1/32" vegetable fiber gasket paper, and split the gasket at the top so i could "wind" it into position without having to remove the rods.
I gooped the joints and that was that.
Sure saved a lot of time.......

We have also used string in the way similar to what Craig mentions, wrapping it around the bolts as it goes. My 18-32 Case block seal to the cast frame was done that way some time ago.
