Thanks, sounds like the stuff I use when changing water pump or thermostat on one of my Cherokees. I'm looking to address the gap between the cover and barrel of the cooking chamber. I thought I saw a thread where aluminum was attached along the lip of the cooking chamber to create a flange which fit inside the cover and eliminated the gap.
