Dr. Hamman :

Hi, I am a professional certified mechanic, with an engineering background, and 35+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. Also keep in mind I don't know if you are a pro or a novice so we may have to fine tune the answer. Feel free to add any additional info you feel is needed as we go on. Always keep in mind that I am here to help you with any questions.

Aviation form-a -gasket Is one of the best gasket sealer on the market. Silicone has only one advantage, and that is it can be used to replace some gaskets. But as far as using the aviation form-a -gasket, it is all I have used for years, and it works very well. If you have any more questions, as always, I am here to help. Good luck with it, have a great day, and Thanks for using Just Answer.
