Default Alternative to Lucky 7/AHZ Wicking Engine Sealant

Hello,

Does anyone know of an alternative engine sealant similar to the Lucky 7/AHZ wicking kind? I have a friend in Canada who cannot easily get the AHZ sealant and the closest I can find is maybe the Permatex Spray Engine Sealant but I'm not sure if that would stand up to nitro fuel. I am looking for a wicking sealant that can withstand engine temps and not your typical silicone gasket maker sealant.

Thanks!

My friend has an old Picco and is having trouble finding a replacement o-ring.

He has a Picco Boost .21 5TR and it has an airleak around where the carb goes into the crankcase. Once it gets to temp it dies no matter what the tune.

On ebay you can find sellers with all kind of dimensions of silicone O-rings and if you look arround you can find a cheap box with all kind of sizes.

But you are sure it is an air leak? What you discribe sounds to me as a worn P/S set.

go on piccoAmerica.com or Tritonrc.com
the orings for triton carb work fine on picco. Same with the newer picco carb gaskets they work fine.
