Radiator Gasket Sealer

Postby Gary Puckett » Mon Feb 26, 2018 7:24 pm

I am replacing a radiator core and admittedly, it is not a cub (52 John Deere A). But, I have a cub and more that likely will need to some day. I would like to know what gasket sealer you all recommend. A good radiator shop I have used recommended Mega Black or Indian Head Shellac. Thanks

I have used the Indian Head shellac for years. Has always worked well. There may be better products out there but old habits die hard.

Permatex aviation for me too, just gotta stir it up real good each time you use it.
