    Gaskets on A100 Belly Pans?? Empty Gaskets on A100 Belly Pans??

    Recently on Facebook, 2 members of the A100 community said there were "gaskets" on the belly pan, when discussing Radiators. I do not have any on mine and do not believe this is true. Can someone please confirm? Thanks

    I thank what they are referring to is maybe the molded Rubber piece that is attached to the Pan?

    I don't know that I would call it a gasket but on mine I have a piece of stiff rubber molded material that runs across the front (if I remember right). It is attached to the belly pan by industrial sized staples. My pan is up in the rafters and hard to get to now so I can't send you a picture.

    I'm not sure if all years had it or if it was a later year addition to help with air flow. Check your pan to see it you have small holes where "staples" used to be. If so the "gasket" has come off over the years.

    I have two belly pans, unknown years and they both have that rubber piece.

    Thanks fellas. So what is the diameter? And I am assuming it runs only across the length of the front?

    There is a rubber air dam at the rear that directs air up towards the radiator, rather than letting it go straight back. I replaced it with a strip of garage door bottom coving using the original screws. Maybe that's what they mean.
