Regardless of what kind of rtv you use, don't get inpatient. Allow it plenty of drying time before you put water in there, otherwise you will make it easier for it to leak.

My best results have been with the Motorcraft grey (particularly on diff covers, I've found every permatex product leaks here) and the International stuff, which is simply insane.

FYI guys........ most of the OEM black and gray RTV's are the same formulation with a different container. How do I know?......   .... one of the manufacturing plants is right here in town and confirmed it moons ago when I gave a short seminar on some S/W stuff they needed. They had the Motorcraft, CAT, MOPAR, International, etc..... and various language labels like the ones shown below. Did I benefit from that seminar and the contacts I made?........ check the last picture below......  Whistling

haha nice joel, we had a Permatex seminar my last year in school, walked away with all sorts of tubes of goober and loctite.

what do you guys use around your press-in style plugs, such as oil galley, frost plugs, cam plug, oil pump, etc...?  I've always just used green loctite or some sort of anaerobic sealer...

What the topic is on that other thread is what do I use EXTERNALLY to seal the engine after assembly so the engine will hold vacuum.

A few of you I have told through the years.  Please, just keep that quiet.

What was he referring to here?

I am with Jimmy on this one.  Black or Blue RTV silicone is what I use when assembling an engine.  I will use the orange high temp junk for header gaskets.

Plus one here.  And to clarify...I use the orange high temp sealer AS header gaskets =D.

Cris 

And how many others have used this with no gasket successfully? I'm getting ready to install some headers now and this would be good to know.

I still like the multilayer soft aluminum gaskets. They aren't cheap, but are reliable and can be used several times. Mine have been off 3-4 times ans still seal great. On top of that, they don't leave a fucking mess everywhere.
