Using Epoxy To Seal Clutch Cover

I bought this



And wanted to know if this would work? Also, if i use too much, will it drip into my oil and cause problems? Thanks

no, there's no crack. I took it off to get powdercoated and want to put back on. Do i even need to seal it to put back on?

NOOO.... dont use that stuff

Use either hondabond at dealer or permatex ultra black/grey rtv gasket maker at autozone...

if you use epoxy you will never get it off..

use a high temp semi-drying silicone gasket maker. DO NOT USE EPOXY.

use high temp RTV......epoxy is like superglue times 100000. dont use it. itll seal up and you wont be able to take it off.

put on as thin a layer as possible. use a knife or razor of some kind if possible. it doesn't take much...at all.

A q-tip works well when applying.. Just make sure there isn't anything on the back.. left over sealant, just use a razor to clean and wipe it down.. Thin coat, you don't want it to come out the sides when you put it on..

yeah you want to get the two mating surfaces clean first. no it doesn't need to be warm. it sets up pretty quick so dont wait too long to mate the two after it is applied. also you only need to put it on one half (cover side is easier, imo).i waited a couple hours and then put the oil in, no leaks.....yet ;)

im afraid that i might put too little and it won't stick as well and i'm afraid to put too much because it might drip into the oil and **** something up. thanks for all the help =)

They don't make a gasket.. just liquid gasket for the clutch cover application
