Air-seal...it comes in a little white bottle with black letters.....it is a black liquid that dries fast and works very well and holds up.

you want Permatex "Ultra Copper"- http://www.permatex.com/products/aut...sket_Maker.htm

It is in a squeeze type tube and is copper/orange in color. It is a high temp, non-corrosive, fuel resistant gasket maker- ie.- you can use it on a real engine in place of a gasket.

Clean your engine well so it adheres good. Use liberally around the carb to ensure you do not block any passages.

Im not 100% but I believe copper version will destroy your engine. It has copper in it which creates a grit , the red doesnt. The red will also survive the same in a nitro engine. The copper is for higher heat ranges that nitro motors dont go.

The main thing is not to put any sealant in the case opening, only put the sealant on the top of the carb shaft to keep any of the sealant from entering the case.
