Title: Ideal 55 Lid Seal Question
Post by: Rebel on August 24, 2019, 12:45:49 PM
Being my first Ideal 55 restoration am curious which lid seal you've found to be best fit. The 4 piece or one piece seals or are they both good fits ? Thanks for the help.

       A one piece gasket must simply be the 4 pieces glued together in the corners. Harder to install but would surely look better when done.

Simply put, yes you would be correct. The 4 piece would give you a little play on fit where the one piece may not and have found one piece seals in the streetrod biz isnt always best. Would much rather have one piece but would like some input from some who may have used both in the past.
