After splitting the crankcase, I'm getting ready to put both halves back together.

Any suggestions on what glue to use? Permatex (soft or permanent), silicone, all-weather door and window caulk, super-glue, double-sided tape ? Only half kidding.....

The shop manual specifies applying liquid packing (gasket) and allowing it to setup before joining the two crankcase halves. Not specific beyond that.

Thanks,
Ted

I'll defer to Bill and his silicon recommendation, but I have usually used the silver colored "Hondabond #2" or "Yamabond#2" (probably the same stuff in different packaging).... It seems closest to the original sealer to me... Steve

Thanks Bill and Steve,

I guess Duck Tape is not a good fit for this application. What a shame, as it does match the color of the crankcase...!?!.

Looks like Honda makes a Silicone sealer for use in areas not requiring solid gaskets (HondaLine HT). Sounds like the stuff to use.

Later,
Ted
