There was some reference the other night about sealing the pucks beneath the cam towers on a 750 engine, I'm nearing Grin that part of my 750 rebuild and I'm concerned about using the right product to prevent leaks.

Back a few years ago when I was spending more freely and thinking ahead a little more, I picked up a tube of Permatex #2 as recommended in a few threads on the forums http://www.permatex.com/products/Automotive/automotive_gasketing/gasket_sealants/auto_Permatex_Form-A-Gasket_No_2_Sealant.htm

But last night Ben and Chris mentioned some 'blue goop' called Hylomar I just spotted it on the permatex website, is this the stuff?
http://www.permatex.com/products/Automotive/automotive_gasketing/gasket_sealants/auto_Permatex_Hylomar_Universal_Blue_Racing_Formula_Gasket_Dressing_Flange_Sealant.htm

Just give the word and I'll search for some for my bike. It seems like similar stuff in concept, but the Hylomar description reads far superior in every way.

Thoughts?
For $10 I don't suppose I should use anything else. http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_Hylomar&174;-Universal-Blue-Racing-Formula-Gasket-Dressing-&-Flange-Sealant-Permatex_7740008-P_N2132_T%7CGRP2132____

I wonder why both companies are using the same name for their product...
Anyway would anyone have any I could use? This Hylomar sounds much better than the permatex version.

I actually need some more so if you're ordering, please let me know. I'd probably go for the spray can, as it coats more evenly than the tube.

Will do, should be plenty to share around with the group too.  Wink
