    Fella seems to know what he is doing.
    The vid title about cops don't want you to know is just utube click bait bullshit.
    Ignore that & watch heavy mechanic make an o-ring custom length.

    Ive always kept a large stash of o rings and gasket paper, last year the pressure switch gasket blew on my compressor blew, cant buy a new switch, made a new gasket for it, saved the cost of a new compressor.

    Cool video.
    I keep a sheet of the green Thermoseal gasket material on my van at all times. Some of the large gaskets in HVAC can be upwards of $300. Doesn't take long to cut your own. A 1/2 inch gas pipe nipple ground down to a point on the edges usually is perfect for the bolt holes.

    Very cool. The kits are $100 on Amazon. For someone not doing this for a living, I wonder why not just buy a huge gasket in each size that can be cut and some Locktite to save some money.
