In 2000 I ordered a supercharger kit for my '99 Miata. It came with a tube of gasket sealer. Grey in appearance, it cured to a firm elastic texture. Impervious to the usual oils and chemicals. Three-Bond. Available at Honda Dealers as HondaBond or at Yamaha dealers as YamaBond. I respect Permatex but they don't make a gasket compound as good as Three Bond. My primary gasket ripped out a two inch section at the top. I have a spare gasket but with ThreeBond I don't feel the need to use it. Wiped clean and washed with carb cleaner and wiped dry. ThreeBond forms a rubbery but firm seal.

Two inches of torn gasket doesn't bother me. I know the gasket sealer will do the job since it's on the top of the primary.

Three Bond, Yamabond or Hondabond....

84 Standard. Fairly bone stock
The Kitchen Bike. Still on the drawing board.

Yep, good stuff in that application. I still use aviation permatex on transmission case gaskets and other such when the gasket doesn't break.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
