Getting ready to put new gaskets on my PC 650 lint basket and waste tank this weekend.  What has been your most successful procedures and beat adhesives that you have used for this?

Thanks in advance

That is a great question...don't have a great answer as I have never done that before. Truth is, my butler tank could use the same thing and now you have me thinking about it.

My first thought would be the 3M HD spray adhesive. I use it when building containment rooms and used it to install my foam insulation on the van. That stuff sticks really well and quickly. Is it the right choice...I dunno. scratch

Oh man, you're going to have a LOT of fun *NOT* Razz
The hardest part is to take the old one out, especially if it's the original gaskets, you would need a good paint scrapper, sand papers, and thin flat head screwdriver. The screwdriver helps me a lot when pulling the gaskets off, try not to break it as you're pulling it, it's harder to start over if it breaks in the middle.
Now regarding the adhesive, I would HIGHLY recommend Polyurethane Adhesive, I think it was Bostik brand that I used last time ? That withstand moisture AND heat, that way you don't have to do it again next year and after you've done your first one, you would wish you wouldn't need to do it again EVER ! LOL.
The original gaskets ( Prochem's pre cut ) are super expensive, I got the gaskets sold by the inches but it was still the original gaskets, you just have to cut them yourself, I think I save about $ 50 by doing that.
Btw, are you Ashley Mckendree's buddy ??
