Hatch gaskets or seals or tape installation
« on: July 19, 2017, 08:27:49 AM »

Stupid question: Anyone install or replace hatch seals on the cockpit hatches on a MKll '34. #1472 appears to have no seals at all. No significant water intrusion, but rattles, etc. Would like to add rubber gasket or foam tape. Better to install on hatch lid than bottom rim. Question is how do you keep the tape on rim with sticky side up, so sticky side adheres to lid when you close. Thanks all.

I'm wondering why not call CTY and get the right gasket (if there's supposed to be one)?

The tape goo (JTSO) doesn't seem to work so well and can let loose in high heat (maybe not an issue in CT)

Is it this gasket (should be le$$$ from CTY)?

if you really want to put a gasket on the lid, I would tape the weatherstrip in place with as few 1" long pcs of double stick tape as you can (the cellophane not foam type)  (maybe just at  corners?).

Stewart : Have you ever sprayed any silicone on those rubber gaskets to keep them resilient?
