The number one maintenance headache on an air cooled VW engine is valve cover
gasket leaks. Ask anyone, we all have a special process, special "goop", we put on
the cork gaskets to get them to not leak. I have seen all sorts of goop used - black
windshield adhesive, wheel bearing grease, white lithium grease, blue RTV, red
RTV, gold RTV, construction wall adhesive, super glue,,,you name it, someone has
tried to put it on cork gaskets to get them to not leak.

As you know, stock vw gaskets leak, and require you to use some sort of "goop" to
seal them up and hold position, silicone and neoprene gaskets are just as bad, but
not needed with this sandwich gasket. It has 22 gauge steel for the middle, 1.5mm
cork on both sides, water jet cut for perfect fit. Cork is glued to the steel with "mil
spec" "aerospace approved" adhesive. This means the steel fits well, and the top
will not bow down, bottom will not bow up, you can install your gaskets dry, the
way VW intended you to do it.Total gasket thickness is 3.94mm, slightly thicker
than a stock gasket and with minimal cork compression it has the highest sealing
pressue.
