Book wants Loctite 573 which is long gone. What can I get at PepBoys that will work well?

 

Anaerobic something?

Am I wrong in assuming that since 1980 no one has improved on 573 - which is no longer distributed in US - for sealing motorcycle or aircraft units? 

 

Jim, it doesn't have to come from PepBoys but only finding it in England seems a stretch. Hoe about NAPA or a bearing house?

Yamabond, Dictmas from elring, there are others; but aren't you using gaskets?

Going to try Loctite 518. No gaskets between the 3 case sections of a 245, paper gaskets only at front and rear flanges.

I've been using this bottle of Curil K2 gasket sealer for about 10 years.  Got it from a VW mail order house.

Did the cap break along the threads allowing the contents to dry out?

How'd you know!   The cap did break so I used some duct tape on it and keep the bottle in a zip lock bag for storage.

"Newer" generally means better, but I can think of at least one venerable product you might consider.  About a thousand years ago, before mechanics could spell "disposable gloves," I grabbed an old standby collecting dust in my garage to reassemble a Getrag 4-speed.  The Sony Trinitron is no longer around but the box is still together and working fine.  Back then, I believe the gooey elixir called Aviation Form-A-Gasket came in a metal container.

These products may be worth noting.  No personal experience, but they seem to fit many of your needs.

I tried some other stuff when doing my oil pan (three times). Permatex seemed to work the best, especially when working with paper gaskets.
