Liquid gasket sealant

I will be replacing the stator on a 2003 Honda Shadow, and the manual calls for a liquid gasket sealant instead of a rubber gasket.

Can anyone recommend brand names of this stuff so I know what to buy? I'm in Canada, but Canadian Tire sells lotsa stuff from the states, so I can probably get the same brands as you guys south of the border.

Yes, I know. I'll put the bong away until -after- the stator is installed...

Liquid Gasket...

I have used ThreeBond Silicone Liquid Gasket 1211, Part Number TB-1211. It's expensive stuff at $25.00 USD for a 3.5 oz tube, but it's the good stuff. Has worked great on our bikes.

Whatever you use, be very careful and don't let big gobs of it get on the inside perimeter of the case or cover. You don't want pieces of the solidified sealant breaking loose and getting into your engine, where it can clog oil passages, and get between gear teeth, etc.

And the winner is:

Permatex Black gasket sealant...on the shelf at Canadian Tire

Just because I'm lazy and cheap. There's a Canuck Buck right down the street.

Thanks everyone.

The stator side of the case is not oil filled. There may be a teensy bit of oil that has seeped past the crankshaft seal, but that's about it. So I'm not too worried about lots of hot oil.

The clutch side would be an entirely different matter, as it's full of hot oil all the time.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, and have a happy bong-filled day. :beatnik:

Janice, just to beat it into you again, just a film on both surfaces is your friend. Too much, and NOT your friend. Even if it is not part of the crankcase you don't want globs of that stuff floating around. A film will seal just as good as a bead in this case.
