    I screwed up and got a gasket for a 10.5 ring gear 14b, and was wondering if anyone knows if Autozone or Napa would stock a gasket for a 9.5 14b??? Thanks.

    i just tried last week to get one from the GM dealer. They claimed that it was not available, and to just use silicone. The first gasket was also for a 14bff.

    Blue RTV will do just fine. I changed fluid a few weeks ago and used it and no leaks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif.

    <font color="green"> Pretty much any RTV will work fine, I always use whatever I have on hand and have never had a leak. The key is to let the RTV skin up a bit before actually putting the cover on. </font>

    i found mine worked perfectly without leting more than 15 seconds of drying. i put the bolts in and scraped off the excess, no leaks after 5 months.

    9.5" useing 80/90 gear oils, require GMS (G.M.Silicone sealant) for sealing the bum-cover.

    (98-ish and up) 9.5" useing synthetic gear oils, will use a actual gasket. The synthetic gear oil will attack the silicone sealant, therfore requireing the gasket.

    9.5"ers are an odd bird, becarefull of that for when repairs/parts are needed.
