    Comments about Permatex Anaerobic Gasket Maker (1.69 oz):

    This is the best gasket sealant money can buy. It's not goopy, it doesn't seep, it doesn't take up so much room that it deforms the gasket when tightened, it isn't impossible to clean up, IT JUST SEALS! It seals everything, head gaskets, valve cover gaskets, oil pan gaskets, nothing is better. Silicon RTV is junk, if it's not applied perfectly, IE not too much, not too little, in all the right spots it will seal, for a while. Since a master semi-truck mechanic I drag race bikes with told me about it and I tried it, I'll never use RTV again, only anaerobic, it's what all OEMs use now anyway.

            Hi Adam, I'm glad to assist you. This Permatex Anaerobic Gasket Maker (1.69 oz) (Part No. 51813) can be used without the surface prep activator. Where cure speed is unacceptably long, or large gaps are present, applying activator to the surface will improve cure speed.

        • Q:

          Does this product have to be used with the surface prep solvent? If so, why isn't it sold as a pair.

        • Q:

          Can I use this to seal a bedplate for my crankshaft? Mopar has a similar product, but I cannot locate it and want to use this in its place.

            A:

            It may but there is no guarantee. You just apply to the area where the seal is supposed to be. It also depends on where you are planning to use it.
