Re: water pump
Hah! I finally found the guy that uses that Indian Shellac (#5 gasket sealer) on water pumps. Ever try to get that stuff off? Go to an auto supply , and get a can of "The Right Stuff" . It's as close to liquid rubber you'll ever find . When used correctly, you can assemble a valve cover or fuel pump or water pump, oil pan , thermostat housing , ect. and fire the engine right up , no gasket , and no leaks , ever. Just remember to leave a little sticking out of the nozzle to get it flowing the next time, or it will set up inside the can . Most of the new engines are assembled with this adhesive, the only gasket used is on the head . About $12-15 at your favorite parts store .
