599 Boot Wiring Harness Gasket

Greetings,


My 599 has a split gasket. I have searched high and low for a replacement with no success. Does anyone have a lead for me to follow? Barring that, has anyone found a aesthetically pleasing solution to repair this?


Thank you,


Rick

Short of sourcing and replacing the harness....I'd consider two options:
Some sort of adhesive to bond the harness cover
Replace the corrugated section with some split loom. You'd still have to bond the split loom to the end pieces. This solution would resemble the original look.

Thank you both for the suggestions. As for option one: If I can find the matching grommet corrugation spacing, I was entertaining cutting some that may be ~10cm long, cut out about 1/3 of the circumference so it would fit inside and use a glue to bond one side, then once it is cured repeat for the other end and just a bit at the original grommet interface. I will have to devise a fixture that will let me a force on it while it cures.


As for the catalogs, I'll peruse those and see if there is something that RTGT would be able to adapt.



Thank you again. I will post what ends up being the solution.

Cyanoacrylic "Crazy" glues work incredibly well on rubber like materials. We used to use it to repair rubber drive belts in cassette players. You can hold it in place long enough for it to bond. It's worth a try.

Hi George,


Thank you for the lead. I couldn't find the part in their catalogue list, but I did send an inquiry.


Best regards,


Rick

I sent an inquiry to Eurospares with a picture. I could not tell from their diagrams if this was listed or not. Thank you for the heads up. - Rick

Thank you. I like the cyano acrylics and to your point they bond quickly. I need to do some dry runs with spare parts to see if I can be fast enough before it bonds. I have tried pulling the two pieces together with the boot open. It is amazing how much force is need to get them to connect. In my opinion, this is one of the reasons it has failed: there is too much strain on the rubber when open. This should be a very low strain designed part.

Rick, I know that Claudio always likes to confirm with a picture just to make sure he's talking about the correct part.
