    James, I don't recall the comments on Dot 4 brake fluid and don't know why you couldn't use it?

    I need to be careful about any gasket sealants. Most of my stuff goes on customers cars, mostly vintage and race stuff. There are a few sealants that can ALMOST do it all, and many many more that do one thing well. I try to use speciality sealants only for special use, and have found the Pemetex Ultra Grey a very good general use sealant WITH limitations.
    Best, Gordon

    Pretty simple. On the gasket surfaces, it is not (or should not with a good gasket) be in contact with fuel. I works on threaded fittings on fuel lines, because again, it is not directly in contact with fuel.
    If it is in direct contact with fuel (not gasoline) it partially dissolves into a gummy mess.The same is true for many other sealants with todays fuel.
    On Weber gaskets to insulator / isolators where I use it, I clean the port itself with lacquer thinner before the Permetex set up on the inside so it will not break down and be sucked into the engine. If the gasket is good and surfaces flat, minimal sealant is required and essentially none is in direct contact with fuel.
    If this stuff was used to seal a seam inside a fuel tank it WILL fail.
    I hope that helps. .
    I guess the best answer would be to use it sparingly to fill voids in gasketed areas away from direct contact with fuel or solvents. Hows that? I hope this clears up how I use it.
    Best, Gordon

    Hello James,

    Thanks for the kind comments! I have some of the stuff left, but not sure it's enough. And not sure how the step across the border would affect costs. But I'm happy to provide some sources for you to investigate. How about emailing me at so we can continue a bit more easily. I'll be watching for it.

    Hi James,
    I can't vouch for him, but I just made a purchase the other day.
    I hope all will be ok.
    Nothing in our communications made me suspicious though.
    Mine is coming surface so I may not know for a couple of months.

    I expect your 70 GTV is carbureted ?
    Therefore - it is other than a USA model ?
