I've posted about this leak before and I have finally found the true leak. I got the body off the T-bucket and the trans out. Cleaned the back of the engine real good. I have fluorescent dye in the oil. Cranked the engine over and lo and behold one of the galley plugs is the culprit. Stood out REAL nice with the dye and black light.

Now what is best to use as a sealant for the threads? I was told Marine Tex Gray was good. I looked on there site which states 250 degrees continuous, shouldn't be a problem, with spikes to 300-325. Also says impervious to diesel fuel. Anything better?

Thanks,

Bill

longt,
if you haven't used Forma-Gasket #2 (great stuff!).....lacquer thinner and/or your wifes nail polish remover (diluted acetone) clean up.....easiest when it is still "fresh"

it stays VERY "sticky" for quite a long time so it's not hard to have a mess on your tools and hands.....

(someday....I will learn....DON'T smooth it on the threads with my FINGER)
