Has anyone used Permatex Anaerobic Gasket Maker before? I used it for the first time this past Sunday on the blower inlet and outlet,and it is still not dry.Probably would have helped had I read the instructions on the tube.It says to to spray Permatex Gasket Prep acvtivator on one surface only.It should be easy to clean up this mess,but really curious to see (or hear ) of any personal results. Moral to story----READ THE INSTRUCTIONS, FIRST

Anaerobic gasket maker sets up in the absence of air (oxygen). Spread on a nice thin coat and bolt the stuff together.

x2 that is absolutely correct. any of the stuff on the outside won't setup, but it will where it counts.

x3..Why they call it anaerobic!!

x4 straight from wikipedia

An anaerobic adhesive is a bonding agent that does not cure in the presence of air

loctite is another example that is an anaerobic adhesive!

I've used that stuff a number of times on the supercharger - the top, snout and rotor pack.

Just be careful you don't use too much if you're putting the rotors back in the case. I did that once, some squeezed out and got between the rotor pack and the backing plate causing the rotors to bind.

With Anaerobic Gasket Maker - more isn't better.

And yet another alternative ... sales pitch coming on ..

Both the Inlet and Outlet gaskets are available below .. the above link is only for the Top ( outlet ) .. but go ahead and use the Anaerobic sealer .. its what the factory uses on those pieces.


Ha ha. ;)
