Just use the sensor safe Permatex RTV. I've been using it for 3 years with no trouble. Apply it to the edge of the backplate, the carb neck, and I usually put a thin layer between the fuel intake and HSN housing.

if something needs sealing on a motor, go to an autoparts store and buy a tube of Permatex Brand Ultra Copper Gasket Sealer.

GREAT STUFF. use SPARINGLY
I use the same. works great. u really don't need it, but why not if it takes all of 10 minutes to apply. can save headaches when you are trying to root out a tuning issue.

tanner , was more of an advertisement and a statement bro . I have been running , tuning, rebuilding , and anything else that has to do with engines for a while now and am just saying that i never have had to use any air seal on my engines the trick to protecting oring seals is to use a good synthetic , rubber safe lube on the neck of the carb when installing and the back plate when installing . personally i dont even turn an engine over on the starter box until I! have taken it apart myself and checked that there are no alu. shavings , mismachined areas , rods installed backwards , pistons installed backwards , etc. I know Jim hottinger very well and give him reports on problems with any engines , am a killer pit guy , just ask Mike Truhe and have been into nitro r/c for about 8 years
good luck with your engines ,

Monty Houston

You guys should listen to what Houston has said. I've been running nitro for more than 10 years and never use any sealants on any motor. If it leaks, it need something replaced, ussually an o-ring.
