Tech Tip: Keep Your Original Rubber Seals and Gaskets

Original Seals and Gaskets

If you follow any tech tip advice from Steele Rubber Products, let it be this one!

Keep. Your. Originals.

Whether you are restoring a classic vehicle, repairing damaged rubber on your boat or RV, or replacing a universal seal on your tractor, this tech tip applies to you!

Compare your new parts with the originals to ensure similar fitment. Over time, originals can lose shape and deteriorate, so they may not be exactly the same, but they should be very similar. There may be a time when a new part doesn’t fit quite right and having your originals to throw back on for the meantime is a much better option than no rubber at all.
