    787 Bottom End Question

    So I just rebuilt the bottom end in my 1997 GTX 787. But now that I'm getting ready to close it up, what should I use to seal the case halves? Is there something I can get at the auto parts store, or is everything good online?

    Honda bond. Go to a dealership and ask for a tube. I think it's $8

    I use 3 Bond 1211. I've used Ultra Black on a set of SBT cases-- mating surfaces had many low spots I did not feel comfortable with using the 1211.

    I have used loctite "flange sealant" a time or two, no problems with it yet.

    I have used Honda Bond.

    Hondabond, Yamabond are both made by Threebond. Any of the Threebond products will work just fine with a 787 case. I personally like the Threebond 1211 the best.

    no matter what is used..the cases have to be surgically clean or it's going to be a massive fail.
