Default Re: Gasket sealant?

I have used silver paint as well, Copper Coat spray is very similar to the aviation sealer which I also use, permatex makes a sealer that is very messy if your not careful with it, its a dark burgandy color aviation type sealer that never gets hard and seal a lot better than silicone which I do not use on gaskets, sometimes silicone creates more issues than it solves, , another great gasket sealer is called Seal All, oil gas and most all chemicals will no break it down with ecception to maybe acetone, I also use it for some things.

My solid simple and easy go to sealer hands down though is the copper coat spray for all the gaskets on the china girl engines, its easy, inexpensive and I works, gaskets are also easily removed and reused afterbeing peeled off, just respray the gasket let it sit for a little while then reassemble and yyou're good as new.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
