Default O-Rings

I just bought a lower intake manifold gasket kit and it came with these 2 o-rings.. I'm not sure what they are for. Does anyone else know and where they go?

Boogey, what year and trim level (SE, SLE, SSEi)? Please put that in your signature under profile so we can help you better. What brand gasket kit? Are the O rings different sizes, like those for the PCV, or are they the same size?

OH, sorry. My car is a 97 olds 88 and the o-rings are the same size and the manufacturer is Fel-Pro.

Both of them go on the same thing? Or one for each side?

Should be one for each side if I remember correctly. Just see what the original elbow has on it, because I know thats what theyre for.

If you haven't replaced it lately, I'd suggest heading off to Pepboys or Advanced, go to the "Help" section and pick up a new elbow. There are 2 in the package, but you'll only use one of them. Part number is....#47065. If it doesn't break when you take things apart, it likely will later.

Yea.. I just realized mine broke.. So I will be getting a new one. Also, I know this isn't the right thread or w/e, but I need to know where I am supposed to put the RTV on my LIM... Do I just put a bead of it in the corner where the 2 seperate gaskets meet? Or do I put it all the way around the gasket? I bought the Fel-Pro LIM Gasket. I thought it was just in the corner.. I just need some confirmation.
