    gasket for fuel injection throttle body on a 1976 eldorado

    I have read, that the metal parts are stainless steel, and the gasket can be "rebuilt". No
    details though.

    I believe the 77-79 425 cars and the 76-77 Seville all used that same throttle body, and
    of course same gasket. Bruce Roe

    Many years ago I looked everywhere for one of those gaskets, there were none to be had.. I also heard that they could be recoated..
    If its leaking , I would try to seal it up with a little high temp RTV.. If you find a fix please post it here.. Dave

    have looked everywhere I can think of from the parts houses to salvage yards specializing in caddy parts - all with the same results - nothing. I am going to use the old gasket with some permatex high temp gasket sealant and will let ya know how that works.

    This thread had me thinking again.. So this is what I did... Took the gasket and took off all the rubber coating. Then took a can of that Flex Seal, like the stuff from TV.. I sprayed like 4 coats of that and it looks about like it was new. But it does not look that even or flat, but I think it could work. What I plan to do to finish it is, spray some PAM or something as a release agent on some glass and put another coat of Flex Seal between two pieces of glass .. I'm thinking this will make a smooth finish. I'll let you know how it works.......
