Gasket Sealer Operation:
Gasket adhesives form a tough bond when used on clean, dry surfaces. Adhesives do not aid the sealing ability of the gasket. They are meant only to hold gaskets in place during component assembly. Use small dabs; they will dry quicker for fast installation. Do not assemble components until the adhesive is completely dry. Most adhesives are ideal for use on gasket applications such as valve covers, pushrod covers, manifold and manifold end seals, and oil pan and oil pan end seals.
