"THE RIGHT STUFF"
« on: March 28, 2011, 01:24:40 AM »
yes thats right folks finally an rtv that works!
Permatex's "the right stuff"
this is not a new product and i am not just discovering it so I am speaking from years of pleasurable experiances with the stuff.
it really is the right stuff when it comes to rtv, if you are ever worried about something sealing than this is the stuff. if you plan to take something apart alot than maybe not because it holds so well. It is the only RTV I have ever used succesfully on oily surfaces. it seems to not even care if there is oil present it will still set no problem.
I have used it as, a headgasket in Johns old omni. it worked
i have temporarily fixed gas tanks with it
patched rubber roofs(works better than rubber roof patch)
sealed cracks in driveways.
I have made cam caps out of the stuff
plugged a hole in my fathers intake which went right into the water jacket and its still holding a year later.
best diff cover gasket i've ever used.
the list goes on.
if you dont have some of this stuff in your garage GET SOME
if you can find the caulking tube of it buy that you get more for your money.
When your done using it make sure you whip a little bit of it over the cap so it doesn't set inside the neck of the tube.
enjoy

they need to make smaller containers (or at least my local store needs to carry them) for us garage weekend hacks that don't need to seal up 6 diffs, 4 intake manifolds an hour... sealed up one diff, plugged the end, with in a couple days it cured deep enough that I could not get it out, I ended up wasting the unused portion.

the right stuff is the absolute best when it comes to sealing housings.
tip 1 prep both surfaces clean then with brake kleen.you want no oil or debris on surfaces
tip 2 dry fit it first, and then apply a 1/8-3/16 wide beade around cover going around the bolt holes install asap.if a film forms wipe off start over
tip 3 before putting it away squeeze out a 1/4" bead and hange it upside down. when you go to use it in a couple months just pull out the end
and it should be just like new.
i have used this stuff for over 15 years and there is nothing better period.
