this stuff is identical to the old air seal brand product and is 1,000 times better than any rtv silicone product put out by other companies .

it can be removed and cleaned then reapplied with no issues .

if there is a must to seal the engine , do it from the outside

okey thanks. I plan on using it on my Vspec carb to seal it properly. Where exactly would i apply it? Will i insert the carb to the crank case first then seal or apply it around where the oring goes? with or without oring?

Lucky7 engine sealant should be used like a coating, not a gasket.
(external use only)
I seal around the carb base, the pinch bolt ends, and the HSN assembly.

thx dunn!
I put mine on a little heavier because when it dries it shrinks down a lot.
I really just gotta do a "how to video" and put it on the site.
