I received my 0.75" oil filter spacer. I did a test mount of the 0.75" spacer and now everything looks like it should clear. I'm ready to finish up mounting the new oil filter adapter. The adapter installation instructions don't mention any type of gasket sealer. In the installation manual there is a generic reference to Gasket Maker and Gasket Sealer. So I ordered the referenced type of K&W 401504, Copper Coat Gasket Compound. I thought I should be ready to go, but looking at the originally installed gaskets it doesn't appear that this stuff was used since they look pretty clean and the Copper Coat material is this dark grayish color. The original gaskets almost look like they don't have any sealant or I guess it could be a clear sealant. So now I'm not sure of the best way to proceed.
Any comments or suggestions?
