Hi All

Given it is a few years since I removed the heater unit from the bulkhead and now ready to reinstall, I need to understand if there is a gasket between the unit and the bullhead?

The parts book is unclear as no specific one is shown in the explosion picture and cannot see one in the list. Also I have two units and neither appear to have had one or at least there are no remains to be seen, but if I look at the bulkhead there is what I think are the remnants of a cork like gasket?

Given the position of the heater unit, it appears to be a natural water trap or is there a rubber seal which goes around the top of the opening in the bulkhead?

Hi Peter

I cannot remember for the Beta heater but on a Monte there is a foam gasket which I remade in closed cell foam to reduce leaks and remove a built in water trap.
