Question Copper spray-a-gasket

Should i put 2 light coats on? Can I just spray or do I need to cover the metal rings that go around the pistons? And how long should I wait to install after sprayed? I was told by a mechanic that he uses this product from Permatex always with great success and confidence.

On gas engines, I have all ways sprayed 2 light coats on the whole gasket. Hang it up with a wire and coat both sides. Let it set for 5-10 minutes and assemble. Be sure to clean the head and block surfaces real good with acetone.

Never done a diesel yet...

As the other gentleman said, we also have always used on gas and some race engines. The only diesel I have ever worked on was an A/C WD45. Used it on the assembly of that engine.

I will take two pork chop sandwiches with dill pickle spears and mayo, two Leinenkugel's Creamy Darks on the side. No fries...

Copper spray or for that matter aluminum paint spray works will. Head gaskets ONLY!!

The 4 piece Chevy intake gasket set just use Greese same with pan gaskets.
