    Default silicone ?

    hi, I was putting the timing cover on the motor, along with the oil pan, and i did something stupid, which isnt new, i had put the black permatex rtv silicone on the timing chain gasket and then i put it on the water pump openings and didnt even realive it till the next morning! the timing chain cover and (water pump) is an old glenwood plate, and the plate covers both (chain and water pump) i was so into putting that shit on i didnt put the grey water pump silicone where the water pump openings are, so the question is has anybody else done this? and did it leak water? I really hate to take the oil pan off and replace all gaskets just because of this! so is black rtv silicone water resistant?

    That's all I use.

    90% of the game is half mental... The pursuit of the unknown is priceless & gratifying . Sometimes it just takes good old fashion balls. No amount of reasoning or evaluation can deem it right or wrong. At the end of the day stick with whatever gives the person in question morning wood LOL

    Thanks for the help, I figured it would be fine but just wanted to make sure, I think the grey stuff that is for water pumps and thermostats is glycol resistant, but since this is in a boat and no antifreeze it shouldn't matter, I'm just used to putting that grey water pump stuff on car water pumps and thermostats, not used to working on a boat motor......it's been a long time

    Ok thanks, what about the exhaust logs? I have old glen wood water cooled through hull logs, and I'm putting them together, at the end of the log there is a gasket between the manifold and the down part or snail , but I don't have snails, anyway do I need silicone on those gaskets or are they dry? I don't remember how it was when I too it apart?
