    A friend of mine recommends and swears by Universal Blue, used in conjunction with or sometimes even in place of, all of the various gaskets. As I have been taking the engine bay apart, I have been finding a thin film of something flexible and blue between various parts... sometimes only blue and no gasket. I'm assuming this is Universal Blue or its equivalent. Has anyone had any experience using this.

    Blue Stuff

    It seems that in the past,,,,20-30 years ago I used to use a blue silicone for a gasket, water and light pressure areas, transmission, oil pan and differental body. Axel housing near the bearing seal area. Always worked for me. Cleanliness is the key with any sealant though.. ABSOULTLY NO oil prior to assembly and let set for at least 8-10 hours.

    An other product was a brown gasket maker, at the time International Harvestor(boy am I old?) had one that I would almost,,,not quite,,, kill for today. That stuff would seal the great flood.
    A real bugger to take apart when you want to though.:confused:
