DIRECTIONS: 1. For best results, clean and dry all surfaces with a residue-free solvent, such as Permatex Brake & Parts Cleaner. 2. Cut nozzle to desired bead size gaskets are best formed using a 1/16″ to 1/4″ (2 to 6 mm) bead. 3. Apply a continuous and even bead of silicone to one surface; surround all bolt holes. Assemble parts immediately. Finger tighten bolts until material begins to squeeze out around flange. Allow to dry for one hour then retighten 1/4 to 1/2 turn. 4. Silicone dries in 1 hour, and fully cures in 24 hours. Allow more time in cold or very dry conditions. 5. Replace cap after use. Note: Not recommended for use on head gaskets or parts in contact with gasoline. Store below 80°F (27°C).
