Default anerobic sealer

I used some anerobic sealer on my crankcase halves several days ago and it is still not cured. Does this stuff stay tacky or should it dry like silicone? It is the red permatex brand.

An anerobic sealer only dries in the absence of air, like locktite. This means that the stuff that has oozed out will not dry. This may have been a poor choice for crankcase halves as the stuff that oozed out on the inside will not harden and could possibly get loose and clog an oil port. I have seen liquid gasket maker do just this. Google anerobic sealer to read more about it.

The sealer I used is what I was told to use on this forum. Some where in a shop manual it says to use it, so I was told, because it it impervious to gasoline. What would have been a better choice in your opinion? I had assumed the members that suggested it had used it with good results.

What leaked out on the inside is still there because I couldnt get in there to wipe it out. The engine is back in the cart, so I really dont want to pull it back out and pull it apart unless this sealer is going to be a problem. Since it is a thick gel it may not matter.

It is just my opinion. I do not use that stuff. A friend who did use it had a problem with it so I was just passing that on... pretty sure somebody else has a different opinion.

Maybe we can get some others to weigh in on the whole anerobic sealer question.

i have used the grey permatex sealer which they advertise for use on motorcycles and snowmobiles, etc. it is brushed on for a thin coat.
after a couple of minutes, assemble. any squeazed out sealer dries to firm
but not hard substance. grey also shows very little. jim

Its expensive but I use Yamabond. Its a grey sealer for crank halves and seals the highest crankcase pressures we can throw at it.
