SEAL ’ER UP
The last damn thing you want is a stuffed gasket when all you want to do is drive your car. So don’t skimp and use the wrong stuff when sealing mechanical components — JB Weld Silicone Gasket Makers and Sealants are the business. They are 100-per-cent silicone, cure quickly on exposure to moisture in the air, won’t shrink or crack, are resistant to oil and petroleum products, and are sensor safe — further, depending on your application, there are specific products available for high temperatures and for use on thermostat and water-pump housings. The range starts at $15 for a 85g tube and is available from leading automotive and hardware retailers.
