If you are trying to lock your diff you cans use clay...like the clay people balance there tires with..You could use jb weld but this way you won`t beable to get the out drives out if you need to change a bearing

The name "Diff Locker Fluid" is the brand name of our silicone oils. It applies to all of the different weight silicone fluids OFNA sells, not just the super thick "locker oils". We have 1000wt fluid, all the way up to 150,000wt fluid. and BTW our 150,000 is the viscosity of 150,000 fluid. That stuff is almost like peanut butter.

Its thicker than 500k, I put some in my hyper 8.5 front diff. The stuff is a mess to work with and if you ever go to change it good luck getting the diff clean again, but it does make the front diff VERY stiff. I would highly recommend the use of the ofna stuff over putty, I went down that road and will never EVER do that again.

Sorry I read your post wrong. Trying to pour out #10230 is like trying to dump out frozen water....... I thought you were using 150K silicone fluid. I apologize.
