LubeLocker gasket???

So I'm waiting for my Detroit to show up anytime soon along with my HD diff cover.
Has anyone got any experience using these gasket? I know Felpro gasket has been recommended on here before, just wonder how they would compare.

looks like a nice peice to me. they're just copying what the oems have been starting to do with trans. pan gaskets lately. make sure you put it together clean. personally i use silicone on diffs and chrysler trannies, it works every time. i would buy one of those gaskets if i felt the need to pull the cover every few months. it's more suited for the drag racers, etc.

I've tried the RTV stuff before and always seem to get a leakage somehow no matter how well I clean the surfaces. I'm thinking going with a gasket this time around, just wondering if that would be worth it. My diff cover will have a drain plug so I don't expect having to pull the cover off unless I need too.

Never used them, but a $5.00 tube of either black or grey permatex silicon will work fine, just clean it good( that means all oils and silicone and fluids off of the surface and you should never have a leak.......I havent in 10 years
rtv has its purpose, but for certain fluids, and you have to pick what is right.

I perfer the black because you cant see it on the diff cover after install

i'd say save your $s for some other mod,for diff covers all i've ever used is good quality rtv it's cheap and has less tendancy to leak.m2c

a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.
