PAIR Removal Question...

One of my winter projects is to remove the pair valve system on my RC. I have the blank-off plates and was wondering if there is any reason / benefit to removing the flame arrestor and valve under it or just leave that in place?

What did you make a gasket from if you've removed it?

Leave it all in there, just pop the top, and put on the blank plates. The Rubber around the edge of the valves act as the gasket.
That's what I did ,works fine...others may use rtv to seal it, but I have no leaks so meh...

Remove all of it, you don't really need a gasket, but u can use RTV to seal it up.

I've been keeping my eyes out for Australian RC Valve covers myself. No Pair Valve provision holes at all.
