231 case leaking
Installed a Short shaft kit on my 231 early last year and now the case half is leaking, been leaking for a while. Can't remember what rtv I used to seal it, but obviously it's not working. What is everyone's recommendation for what RTV to use?
Let the rtv sit for a minute or so to get a little tacky. Before you put it together. I have had to do that several times in the past.
Clean all the sealing surfaces well. Remove all old RTV. Wipe down with brake cleaner to remove all grease. Generally, you want to wait and let it setup (as recommended above) before final torque. Check the package for the specific instructions for your RTV - recommended wait time may vary. Permatex Ultra Black is generally highly respected and recommended, and I've used it in the past. I would caution against using too much RTV. Here's a great video from Teraflex - it shows them cleaning the face and discussing the amount of RTV to use. And where the extra RTV goes...
