I've used blue Hylomar. Not designed for constant immersion IIRC, but never caused a problem on mine.

Cheers guys.

There was a hopeless thin gasket in there which had cracked and some semi liquid hermatite.

Made a 3mm insertion rubber gasket and sealed both sides with Hylomar. Looks proper, fingers crossed.

Best check blue Hylomar isn't fuel soluble. I think it is.


If the gasket you made is ok, you won't need it anyway.

Thats what I use. Made by Stagg, lots of nasty chemicals in it. Finding it in kernow may be a bit hard though.
