    Everyone uses RTV now, just not orange? It should be oil resistant black or grey. Orange is usually high heat , on your engine, gear oil is hard on most RTV, unless it states oil safe @ this point IDK anymore.

    Haha. I heard that. I had to think about it too. It’s been a while since I used RTV sealant.
    I used to be able to do about anything and everything to a vehicle I wanted. I can still do basic maintenance and more than most I guess. But the more the technology advances and the longer warranty coverages the less I do.
    I miss the old stuff, but maybe it’s sentiment too because I sure don’t miss changing water pumps, alternators, etc on the side of the road.
    Now I have roadside assistance.

    Yeah, the sillycone was just to stick the string to. Haha, I use very minimal orange on engines. Pretty much just enough to stick the gasket. I don't like seeing goop squeezing out of every nook and cranny.

    Ain't that the truth! I drove a 69 F-100 short bed that I wasn't scared to take anywhere but it liked to keep me on my toes. Haha.
