Question about 1987 Ford Ranger
I am replacing an intake manifold gasket and found that the replacement gasket did not extend all the way to the front and back of the engine like the original one did. This was by design it seems as the replacement gasket instructions said to use RTV and "build" as gasket with RTV from under the manifold to the engine block.
This seems strange to me to need to do this. Is this typical of replacement gaskets? It seems that this is kind of iffy!
I've replaced several of these gasets and they were made that way.
It wouldn't hurt to call a different autoparts store and ask them if theirs are made that way.
