Steward Vacuum tank

Recommended Posts

I am rebuilding my vacuum tank and looking for advice to place cork gasket.

The cork gasket fits outside of raised lip and mates up with ridge on the inner tank.

1) do need both gaskets in the rebuild kit?

2) is there sealer required?

 

The ridge seems high.

That type uses one gasket. The older ones have a flange on the inner tank with the holes in too. That one uses two gaskets.

You shouldn’t need any sealant on the gasket.  I used none on mine and it’s fine although I did notice that I got a slight weep coming up through one of the screws so a little thread sealer may be helpful?
