I have an oil filter housing (located on the top of the block) that has a crossover tube that connects to it which runs from the back to the front of the V10 engine. The end of it I believe is connected to the dry sump oil pump. Oil pressure can reach 50-60psi and the temperature up to maybe 190 F.
The gasket that is between the oil filter housing and the block is a metal reinforced gasket coated with some rubber or something else that is deteriorating (19 years old). The cost of a new gasket is $1000 so I'm trying to avoid buying a new one.
Can I use some sort of gasket maker material or a sealant such as Optimum Black RTV sealant as a replacement?
