    I did post a similar topic couple weeks ago..but has anyone tried the copper gasket for magneto cover? ..did it help water from getting into compartment? I got stuck in the rain and magneto got wet..blew it.

    I will try silicone sealer around the cover..anyone do that?

    Silicone definitely works. I use Permatex ultra black gasket maker in addition to gasket material from auto zone. I still have the original magneto after so many times of being caught ina downpour.

    a friend says that painting the seam with nail polish works well & can be done along the outside quickly without having to remove the cover - all colors including clear are available to match engine color too
