    Comments about Permatex Form-A-Gasket No. 2 Sealant (3 oz):

    I use form-a-gasket for all kinds of stuff - one tube lasts for years without drying out. I use it on air compressor hose fittings instead of telfon tape. The tape can tear and get caught in small orifices like those in my paint sprayer. Using form-a-gasket I dont have to worry about this.
    I use it when I rebuild an engine. Great to hold new gaskets in place on transmission and oil pans, water pumps, and thermostat housings. And I sometimes use it as the name suggests - to form a gasket. I've been using it for 35 years and I would recommend it to anyone.

    • Q:

      Can I use this on a cut gasket in between carburetor and engine. As it will be in direct contact with gasoline. I know some say ok with petroleum products but not gasoline. Just want to make sure I use the right stuff. If not this then is there something I can use? Thanks.

    • Q:

      I had a poor seal (gasoline leak ) with an inline gas fuel filter "kit". I had tightened to the maximum extent. Will this prevent leakage if applied to the male threads?

        A:

        I'm happy to help, Doug! I generally recommend that you install the fuel filter without any additional sealers if possible to ensure that the connection is done properly. If you still require additional sealant I have found that the best option would be Permatex Aviation Form-A-Gasket No. 3 Sealant (Part No. 80019).

    • Q:

      The oil sump gasket in my 18.5 hp B&S engine disintegrated when I disassembled the engine. Can I use Form-A-Gasket without a gasket to seal the oil sump when I re-assemble the engine?

        A:

        I'm happy to help, HRH! I would recommend trying to locate a gasket for your engine if possible. A web search for your engine and the phrase oil sump gasket might help you locate a part that fits your engine. There are some that have had luck in using this product in such an application.
