Permatex Gear Oil RTV Sealant (3 oz)

Part No. 81182 Warranty  
OEM specified. Specially formulated to withstand the harsh gear oil environment found in differentials and transfer cases. Because gear oil has friction modifiers that break down normal RTV and cause leaking, this silicone has been tested to OEM specifications to ensure complete sealing. As a gasket maker, it seeks and seals leak paths that cut gaskets cannot.

      Time has yet to tell, but this stuff is like ford or international grey silicone. It formed sucah a seal i had my diff cover misaligned just a hair and had to use a hammer to tap into place!! Only reason for a 4 star is I haven't had it more than a couple days...

      Was hard to get out of tube, but worth knowing it won't leak in a few months, as other rtv's have in past. worth the extra money.

          Works as designed. Some RTV sealants tend to leak even within short periods of time. I used this the same day I received it and it doesn't leak.

            Why don't the "advisors" answer the question asked instead of just copying and pasting the text from the specifications for this product? I hadn't noticed it before but see it happening everywhere on the QandA for a large number of products on this website now.
