To you fellows who are using a 55 gal drum lid as a puffer relief with screen door spring holding it— do you do anything special to the lid or the drum connection to keep them from leaking? TomC
I replaced the drum seal with high temp silicone gasket permatex. When doing it , i painted an index mark on the lid and drum. It seems to seal best if replaced that same orientation.
Hi Andy, do you put grease on the top of the barrel lip and put the silcone gasket permatex in the lid grove and put the lid on to from a seal?
Yes, thats what i did.
Good morning Mr. Tom .
I use the original seal and usually put a coating of grease on it. It may leak a little smoke at first but will soon seal itself.
