CRANKCASE HALVES SEALANT

Post by NOSHER » Thu Jun 03, 2021 12:51 pm

OK NOBODY ON HERE APPARENTLY HAS EVER SPLIT THERE OWN CKANKCASE HALVES AND RESEALED THEM APPARENTLY DUE TO THE DOZENS OF REPLIES I HAVE RECEIVED(NOT) AS TO THE CORRECT SEALNT FOR THE JOB.

SO IF YOU ARE CHOOSING A LOCTITE/HENKEL PRODUCT TO SEAL UP ALL YOUR "MACHINED FACES" THEN ACCORDING TO TECH DEPT AT LOCTITE/HENKAL( WHO KINDLY SENT ME A TECH LINK) THE PRODUCT APPLICACLE IF YOU LIKE ME DONT LIKE THE IDEA OF SPENDING £40 ON A TUBE OF 3BOND AND ONLY USING £3 WORTH (I`M ON A STATE PENSION--SQUEEK SQUEEK) AND THE REST OF THE TUBE SITTING IN YOUR TOOL BOX MAYBE NEVER USED AGAIN,THEN THIS IS THE CORRECT PRUCT WHICH WILL NOT FAIL.

I BOUGHT A 50ML TUBE ON EBAY £12.99 FREEPOST--LARGE TUBE WITH TINY NOZZLE SIZE TO APPLY VERY THIN BEAD.

TECH ADVICE TO ME WAS"APPLY A TINY BEAD TO TRY SIZE IN THE MIDDLE OF ONE FLANGE PLACE A PIECE OF CLEAR PLASTIC OR CARD ON SEALANT AND PRESS DOWN AND INSPECT THE "SPREAD" OF THE ADHESIVE YOU WILL FIND YOU DO NOT NEED ANYWHERE NEAR THE AMOUNT YOU THINK TO SEAL THE FLANGES--THE ADHESIVE BEAD SHOULD BE BIG ENOUGH TO SPREAD ACROSS THE FLANGE AT PRESSURE BUT NO MORE AS YOU DO NOT WANT TOO MUCH EXCESS.

LOCTITE IS AN ANAEROBIC SEALANT/ADHESIVE SO WILL NOT CURE OUTSIDE OF THE JOINTED AREA AND WILL NOT BLOCK ANY INTERNAL ORIFICE AS ANY EXCESS WILL BE DISPERSED BY THE COMBUSTION OIL SPRAY.

ANAEROBIC MEANING REQUIRING AN ABSENCE OF FREE OXYGEN---HERE ENDETH THE LESSON :lol: :lol:
HOPE YOU WEREN`T TOO BORED BY THIS VERY IMPORTANT PART OF ENGINE REASSEMBLY--NOW IF I CAN ONLY FIND THAT ONE GUDGEON PIN THAT I HAVE LOST SOMEWHERE IN THE GARAGE :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

You`re a bit out of date with those prices fella:-
56019-120-eu ThreeBond--------------------£38.42 + vat=--£46-10p

liquid gasket 92104-002-eu------------------£23-00 + vat=--£27.60p

You must only use Threebond(aenorobic) for crankhalves sealing as Liquid gasket is what it says and is for added sealing to engine outer gasket areas as it is RTV SILICONE BASED and is a no-no for internal engine sealing.

The loctite/Henkel product is the real deal for the job and @£13 is a great saving when you are counting the total costs of a crank rebuild !!!

LOOK AFTER THE PENNIES AND THE POUNDS WILL LOOK AFTER THEMSELVES !!
YOU GET MORE POKES WITH TWOSTROKES !!

My price was based on a google search today for the direct three bond product, nothing out of date!

As I said, referring to the service manual for which sealant to use where.
