Background
Proper sealing in gasketed joints is dependent upon:

Proper gasket design/material selection for the application.

Appropriately rigid flange design.

Sufficient initial and retained clamping force supplied by bolts to create proper sealing.

Appropriate bolt spacing.

Proper assembly and handling techniques.

Proper localized use of gasket adhesive, RTV silicone, and sealants.

Sealing material and sealing surfaces free of solid or liquid debris and contamination.

All the above factors must be designed appropriately and controlled to ensure a leak-free joint.

Note: RTV (Room Temperature Vulcanization) silicone is a type of silicone rubber made from a base plus a
curing agent. Room temperature and exposure to air cures the rubber.

Storage of Flanges
Gasket joints are sensitive to the quality of the flanges. Flange surfaces shall be checked for the presence of
defects that may compromise sealing. Flanges should not be used if such defects are found. All flanges must be
stored such that these surfaces are protected from damage such as scratches, nicks, and gouges.

Flanges should never be stored or stacked on the sealing face.

Flanges must never be slid or moved across a table or other surface on the sealing face.

Clean separators (cardboard or plastic) are recommended to prevent damage during the transportation and
storage of finish-machined flanges.

Flanges must be stored in clean covered containers, cabinets, shelves, racks, or a similarly enclosed
environment. This storage is to avoid the settling of debris on the sealing surface. r080crc15

Storage of Gaskets
Gaskets must be stored flat in an unstressed condition. Gaskets must never be stored in a manner that would
cause deformation of the gasket. Avoid folding, hanging, or deforming the gasket during storage. If stored
properly gaskets may be stored for no more than 5 years. If stored incorrectly this risks damage and degradation
to the gasket. Be sure that all surfaces of the gasket are free from material cracks or cuts due to improper
packaging.

Manufacturer packaging will provide the best storage and contamination practices.

Illustration 3 g03217962

Special care shall be given to rubber coated metal gaskets. Rubber coated metal gaskets are highly susceptible to
coating damage. Damage to the coating can affect sealing ability.

Cleanliness
Seal/Gasket Cleanliness
The storage, handling, or assembly process must not compromise seal cleanliness.

Flange Cleanliness

Gaskets must be assembled to clean and dry flanges. Any debris within the joint can cause leakage in the field.
Dry flanges can become oily due to previous assembly procedures that drip oil across the flanges.

If necessary, wipe flanges with a clean, lint free wipe immediately before gasket assembly. Replace the wipes
frequently to prevent contamination of flanges with a dirty wipe. If necessary and allowable, isopropyl alcohol
can be used to clean the flanges.

Consider using degreasers or cleaners on joints with severe cleanliness problems. Soft bristle discs can be used
for cleaning provided the disk does not cause damage.

Prior to reassembly the flanges must be clean and undamaged from either service or the cleaning process.
Recommended discs include: 165-3945 Abrasive Disc, 165-3946 Abrasive Disc, and 165-3947 Abrasive Disc.

Handling
Handling of Flanges

Gasketed joints are sensitive to the quality of the flanges. Flange surfaces must be checked for the presence of
defects that would compromise sealing. Flange surfaces must not be use if particular defects are found. These
defects can include the following:

Burrs

Nicks or large scratches

Paint contamination

Metal shavings or machining chips

Dirt

Liquid contamination such as grease

Other debris

Poor surface finish or porosity

Out of flat problems

Clean cardboard or plastic separators are recommended to prevent damage during transportation and storage of
finish machined flanges.

Handling of Gaskets

All gaskets must be handled carefully to minimize the chance of damage. Tearing, bending, and creasing of soft
fiber gaskets must be prevented to ensure proper sealing performance. Scratches in the thin coating on rubber
coated metal (RCM) gaskets will also lead to failures.

Gaskets must not be slid across tables or other surfaces as sliding can cause scratches.

Assembly Aids
Adhesives

Occasionally it may be impossible or impractical to restrain large flexible gaskets with just dowels and guide
pins. Restraining large gaskets especially on vertical surfaces such as the front housing can be difficult. In such
cases where sagging gaskets are a serious concern 3M'sAdhesive No. 4224 may be used sparingly.

Note: Currently there is no Caterpillar part number for the adhesive. r080crc15

Adhesive should only be applied to the flange on one side of the joint, never directly to the gasket and never on
both flanges. This application is especially critical in any joint with shear motion (such as bimetallic joints). For
bimetallic joints, adhesive should be applied to the iron or steel flange, not the aluminum.

Adhesive shall be applied in a thin layer enough to be tacky. The adhesive will have a shine or sheen, but shall
not be visible to the naked eye when viewed directly. The adhesive shall not be applied in such quantity as to
cause a run on the flange surface.

Illustration 6 g03217977
Examples of adhesive application.
(1) Properly applied adhesive is shiny but not easily visible.
(2) Improperly applied adhesive is dull and easily visible.

There are five primary reasons for minimizing and controlling the amount of adhesive used:

1. The adhesive is detrimental to the gasket properties and causes softening resulting in loss of bolt torque.
However, if used sparingly deterioration is minimized.

2. Adhesives can reduce the sealing ability of the gasket by interfering with the gasket-to-flange interface.

3. Excessive amounts can cause the gasket to adhere to both surfaces, increasing the risk of tearing. This risk
is especially critical in bimetallic joints.

4. Flange surface damage may occur when removing strongly adhered gasket material during service. This
damage defeats the purpose of intentionally applied anti-stick coatings.

5. Adhesives that are incompatible with the fluid system can enter the system undissolved and cause
premature plugging of the filter.
r080crc15
The assembly aid compounds are to be stored in a clean, closable container that is kept closed between uses.

Pre-Assembly Inspection

Complete a quick visual inspection of all components before the assembly process. A brief inspection is a quick
visual review of the part and the mating component for damage or debris. This inspection is to help identify part
issues before assembling the parts to the components.

Assembly
RTV
Cat utilizes many types of RTVs to meet the specific need and temperature of the application. When using an
RTV product, reference Table 3 to obtain the proper product for use. Application of the RTV shall be applied,
when needed, as a thin bead approximately 3 mm - 5 mm (0.12 inch - 0.2 inch) in width. Refer to Illustration 7
for an example.

Note: Acetoxy cure RTV materials must not be used. The curing process can cause degradation of flanges and
gaskets.

Illustration 7 g03240796
Proper RTV bead size.

RTV shall always be applied in a stable, controlled, consistent manner. RTV shall be applied in a 3 mm - 5 mm
(0.12 inch - 0.2 inch). The bead shall be applied on a stable stationary surface, for example: not while the
component is moving down the assembly line.

To help ensure a 3 mm - 5 mm (0.12 inch - 0.2 inch) diameter bead, a uniform tube cutter is highly
recommended. Refer to Illustrations 8 and 9.

Illustration 9 g03246119

Do not use RTV silicone or any other sealant as a full-coverage surface dressing for a gasket. The only exception
to this rule is when silicone Types: J, K, L, M, and N RTV is used as a sealing aid for a T-joint. Refer to Table 3.

Do not use RTV silicone or any other sealant as a gasket adhesive. If necessary, use the approved gasket
adhesive such as 3M's Adhesive No. 4224.

All joints using RTV must be assembled within 10 minutes of RTV application. After 10 minutes, the material
will start to skin over and sealing performance will be compromised.

Sealants, in general, anaerobic sealants most never be used in the same joint as a gasket. Certain anaerobic
compounds, such as polyacrylate anaerobic materials, may be an exception.

T-Joints Caterpillar: Confidential Yellow

7/4/2019 793D Off-Highway Truck FDB00001-UP (MACHINE) POWERED BY 3516B Engine(SEBP3976 - 206) - Systems & Components

A T-joint occurs when one joint abuts perpendicularly to another joint. Such as where the oil pan spans across
the joint formed between a housing and the block. The three-way joint forms a "T" shape when viewed from the
side.

There are two varieties of T-joints. The first most common type, the leg joint is assembled first. All block-
housing-oil pan joints are this type. In the second, and less common type, the crossbar joint is assembled first.
This joint is common with multi-piece oil pan joints.

Silicone Types: J, K, L, M, and N must be applied to the T-joint to aid in sealing as described below. Refer to
Table 3 for Silicone Types. RTV must be applied in the T-joint area at each interface between the seal/gasket and
a flange. For a typical block-housing-oil pan joint, this means within the leg joint (block to housing) at each
interface and again across the leg joint before assembly of the cross bar joint (oil pan).

Note: All surfaces that RTV will be applied to must be wiped clean and dry.

Note: All joints using RTV must be assembled within 10 minutes of RTV application. After 10 minutes, the
material will start to skin over and sealing performance will be compromised.

If a fiber gasket or other soft sealing material is used in the leg joint, then the gasket should be designed
approximately 10 mm (0.40 in) longer than the mating flange so that it sticks out conspicuously.

The gasket should be trimmed flush to the bottom of the flanges using a soft metal scraper or a putty knife.
Ensure that damage is not done to the flanges prior to assembling the crossbar. Ensure that the trimmed materials
are properly disposed of and does not contaminate the component.

Note: Only integral seals with specially designed trimmable rubber extensions should be trimmed flush. Integral
seals with only the rubber sealing bead extending out of the flanges must NOT be trimmed. Trimming the
rubber sealing bead can result in the bead tearing.

If a metal or untrimmable gasket is used in the leg of the "T", then it should be designed such that it is cut back
and does not extend into the T-joint. In this case, no gasket trimming is necessary, although the excess sealant
must still be removed.

Type 1 T-Joints

The following section contains specific examples of assembling Type 1 T-Joints using different types of sealant
and gasketing technologies.

In the case of a trimmable gasket or integral seal, RTV must be applied at the T-Joint area on each side of the
gasket during joint leg assembly. After assembly any gasket material or excess RTV protruding from the joint is
trimmed. After trimming, a new bead of RTV is applied across the flush leg joint. After fresh RTV is applied,
the crossbar joint is then assembled.

For example, the steps to assemble a C15 cylinder block, front plate, front housing, and oil pan is as follows:

If using a press-in-place (PIP) seal, RTV must be applied at the T-Joint area on the non-grooved flange (opposite
the PIP seal) during assembly of the leg joint. After assembly any excess RTV protruding from the joint is
removed, and a new bead of RTV is applied across the leg joint. The crossbar joint is then assembled. For
example, the joint between the C15 cylinder block, flywheel housing and oil pan are assembled as follows:

Some integral seals are specially designed to have the rubber bead as close to flush as possible with the surface
of the crossbar joint. In these cases, RTV shall be applied across the assembled leg joint only.. No RTV is
necessary within the leg joint. The crossbar joint is then assembled. For example, the joint between the CX35
transmission case, housing, and pan are assembled as follows.

Type 2 T- Joints

Type 2 T-joints, most commonly encountered in multi-piece oil pans, are assembled slightly differently than the
more common Type 1 joints. The principles are the same however, in that RTV must be applied in the T-joint
area at each interface between the seal/gasket and a flange.

For a typical multi-piece oil pan joint, RTV must be applied across the crossbar piece at the anticipated location
of the leg joint and again within the leg joint at each interface before assembly.

A template is useful for identifying the proper RTV location on the block before the pan pieces are assembled.

Regardless of the exact configuration of the T-joint, all surfaces contacting the sealant shall be as clean and dry
as possible.

Instructions for applying RTV to Type 1 engine T-joints can be found within 236-5128 Instructions. The basic
method and principles are applicable to other applications as well. This part number can be referenced on
assembly drawings for clear, easily referenced instructions.

Multi-Section Gaskets

Use silicone types E, J, K, L, M, or N (oil resistant RTV silicone), refer to Table 3. Apply the silicone at the
interfaces of all multipiece gaskets. Apply RTV to both sides of the gasket (block side and oil pan side in the
case of a multi-section oil pan gasket).

Illustration 42 g03507409
RTV applied to Puzzle Gasket.

The RTV must fully cover the seam between gasket sections, and will exceed the 3 mm - 5 mm (0.12 in - 0.2 in)
guideline from the section "RTV" within this document. r080crc15

7/4/2019 793D Off-Highway Truck FDB00001-UP (MACHINE) POWERED BY 3516B Engine(SEBP3976 - 206) - Systems & Components

The RTV shall form a wide, shallow "pad" covering the seam, which may require leveling or smoothing after the
bead is applied. Refer to Illustration 42. This is most common on "puzzle-piece" style oil pan and flywheel
housing gaskets.

As with the previous RTV requirements regarding T-joints, all surfaces contacting the sealant shall be as clean
and dry as possible. All joints using RTV must be assembled within 10 minutes of application. After 10 minutes
the material will start to skin over, and sealing performance will be compromised.

Bolt Tightening
Tighten according to the Disassembly and Assembly Manual unless otherwise specified.

Do not torque higher than the specified values, especially to correct a minor leak or weep. If seepage or leakage
occurs, over-tightening is not a solution and will result in joint failure. Over-tightening can crush the gasket or
bow the flange, making the situation worse.

Gasketed joints should be tightened in multiple steps. Applying an intermediate load (torque) to all the fasteners,
then following up with full torque will help provide more consistent joint loading.

In joints using different-sized fasteners, the larger fasteners should generally be tightened first. Small fasteners if
tightened first can become loose when a nearby large fastener is tightened.

Illustration 44 g06381756

Tighten fasteners according to the specified torque sequence, if available. If no torque sequence is specified,
then tighten in a star or spiral pattern. Do not tighten adjacent fasteners in order around the perimeter of the bolt
pattern.

Do not re-torque Type-K anaerobic joints because the compound begins to cure immediately after flange
assembly. Re-torquing will cause the anaerobic to crack and lead to joint failure.

Fasteners must not be loosened and retightened. For example, bolts may not be removed to install a bracket,
wiring harness clip, then retightened, as the gasket seal will be compromised.

Troubleshooting Leakage

There are many factors that could cause leakage to occur during testing. The following is a list of items to check
that in the event leakage is detected during a test:

Was the gasket installed?

Is the bolt torque correct? Were any of the fasteners loosened and retightened?

Are the mating surfaces clean, dry, flat, porosity-free, and in good condition?

Is the gasket in proper condition (undamaged, scratch free)?

Does the gasket fit into the joint properly? Is the gasket positioned correctly?

Is the air test pressure appropriate for this type of gasket?

Note: Some gaskets require a "settling" period involving time, temperature, or fluid exposure to seal effectively .
A failed air pressurization test during this time frame is not necessarily indicative of a bad joint. If replacing the
gasket does not solve the issue, or the same joint routinely fails a pressurization test, conduct a formal root cause
analysis with appropriate design groups.
