I am about to do another LIM gasket and wondered what are most people's preferences. I have heard people using either white Teflon, blue Locktite, red Locktite, or even nothing to lock the threads of the LIM bolts. What do you use? Secondly I knew a mechanic who just hated the two small LIM strips at the each end of the engine and just used RTV only. To use the two LIM strips or not to use the LIM strips (instead of RTV only), that is the question as Shakespeare would say. What do you think is best? If you have heard seen any bad repercussions from either of these procedures please tell me your story. Thanks for the feedback. Also what RTV did you use? I just used the black version. Also do you use Rolock pads to clean up the gasket?
