To assemble the two engine halves, a shop mechanic and many others suggests to use “3 bond 1211”.

The parts dept. doesn't carry “3 bond 1211”, but says "I don’t have any 3 bond gasket maker, but I can get Hondabond 4 which is Honda’s version of gasket maker. That is $11.73 per tube."

Is “3 bond 1211” gasket maker the same as "Hondabond 4"?

Several websites state: “This (Hondabond 4) is a liquid gasket silicone sealant used to seal critical areas as specified in service manuals. DO NOT use it for gasketless applications.”

Your experiences?

You wouldn't want to use the Hondabond, ask about Honda flange sealer, it's made for just that sort of application.
Try to get it in the squeeze tube, not the pressurized can.

Hi from Brampton. I remember some old timers using a silk thread along with the sealer when assembling engine halves with out gaskets. I googled

'Using a silk thread while assembling engines' there were quite a number of returns.Aircraft engines use split cases like a Goldwing. Hope you find the correct information. One of the sealant types was Loctite 515,later John
