***URGENT HELP NEEDED*** Vauxhall Gray Sealant
« on: 11 May 2015, 11:39:26 »

Hi guys...
Hope you all had a great weekend. :y

I'm living in Spain and it's just impossible to get Vauxhall/Opel grey sealant.
I'm for the love of whichever ever God getting frustrated to the max. I need to seal my oil cooler plate and searching to buy one
I always end up with this...

Will this do the job.
Urgent replies needed thanks.

Cheers
Anthony

Is how Ive always done it...

Since this is in the gallery section, I was hoping for a picture of a helpless Spaniard covered in sealant, but to no avail...  ;)

Believe the correct equivalent is Loctite SI5660. I would guess it's actually what GM / Vauxhall use albeit in there own packaging.

Not sure tbh.

Grey goo is also used on the breather box to crank case seal, behind pot5, and upper and lower sumps, fairly sure.

...?

I don't think it's that critical to be honest.  ;) 


If you can't get the Vx grey goo then use a quality instant gasket that's resistant to heat and coolant. Hylomar Blue for example.  :)


You can probably get that from your local factors in Madrid.  :y
