    Hi All

    65 Riv - TH400 - i've got a new style 'open' kickdown solenoid which didn't come with a metal or any other gasket - the original existing gasket used with the original solenoid doesnt fit (see pics).

    Opinions on line vary as to i need a gasket with the new replacement - but im thinking as it has a raised rubber ring then i dont' need one - any opinions? IMG_1814.JPG IMG_1815.JPG

    As long as the rubber O-ring seals the opening (that's the important part) your good.

    The raised rubber ring is fine.. Just make sure it's seated in its groove and the mating surface is clean..
