Your warranty will be void the moment you turn the first screw.
Whoops.  This thing has already been beko'd, washed and poorly reassembled.

I mean the seal in the cyclone itself.

Ah, yes, cyclone gasket. We sell loads of them.

So.... how necessary is this gasket?  Can I just use some bubble gum or a beer box like gearheads use for head gaskets?

I'll do that, IDGAF!

So the cyclone's seal looks perfect :'(

I did flip over the machine and squirted some silicone lube on the relief valve.  It was sticking and irregularly going off when blocked but a bit of silicone seemed to make it more reliable... it also made the fluttering louder.  I suspect that MVacs was right in the first post!  :grinn:
