Using Permatex Right Stuff on timing cover oil pan seal
Hello guys I am getting ready to do my cam swap soon but have a few questions. I don't use the bottom rubber seal on my timing cover that seals over the oil pan but instead I have been using permatex ultra black gasket maker since it allows me to not have to drop my oil pan any and by angling it right I can get it pushed down on the pan then back up against the block and then torque it down.
But this time I am going to try to use the permatex black right stuff gasket maker and I have never used it before. Is this stuff really good and will I have enough time to make a good bead on the bottom of my cover and then get it placed on before it totally cures.
I am used to having to wait for it to cure and then being careful when installing my timing cover and then I take my finger and smear the excess gasket maker off to make a nice smooth looking seal. Will I be able to do the same with this stuff? Hope you guys who have this can give me your experience with it. I really hope to be able to use it since it will cure faster but I wont be driving it right after that anyways.
I will have to get all my other stuff put back together and also want to use this stuff for my intake front and back seals.
