Best sealant for gearbox
« on: August 13, 2013, 02:31:31 PM »
Just after some recommendations for the best sealants to use on my gearbox rebuild. I've used aviation cement (permatex) on the engine and diff with great success, was thinking it should be good for the box too?

Any silicon tube type sealant, thin smear with fingers either side of centre plate, and under front cover, on the outer edges.
The pin and circlips at gearstick, as well as pin and circlip that holds gearstick reciever into extension housing, a decent dob of slicon on the circlips, keeps them from popping off in use.
I just race old datsuns:
Group S Historic 280Z ( not a zx but a USA 280z)
Group O/T Historic Datsun Sports 2000
Group G Datsun 120y  with FJ24 fitted( ex G. Fury)
Marque Sports Datsun Fairlady 1966 -SR20DET

Daniel.
Seriously dude. I've read. Re-read. And it still doesn't make sense to me.
Would you like to try again? ???
