    How to Install O-Ring and Header Gasket on Raypak R406a

    Hi,

    This might be a silly question, but I can't get the O-Ring to stay in place while I try to bolt on the header. The O-Ring that came with the part doesn't sit still inside the header and falls loose, but there's no way to get your hand around to set it in place once it's close to being bolted on. The only thing I could think of was some kind of glue to hold it in place, but I'm not sure if that would harm the brand new O-Ring. Any tips?

    Some lube should hold it in place

    Just to make sure, use majic lube. Not petroleum based lube.

    Thank you! I didn't know such a thing existed. The header is secure, and no leaks.
