secret with rtv is to let it cure before you put it under pressure.....

should be ok as long as you dont go too mad on the bolts

Thank you Zocko ,wishing a great 2011
I have read many of your replys on the forums and it apears that you are a most knolageable guy,
Due to xmas I have just unraped the gasket which i bought from Ebay ( Japarts of east London'ish) and they have sent a g13a gasket even though I asked for a 8valve and sent the reg L285NPU  and engine No G16A333279 I think i understand that engine No can be confusing,and I will learn more as I go along,I have Emailed supplier and waight developments it was only £3-95 + postage, Its just annoying as I could have done the work to day ( back to Work Tuesday) but only for a couple of month's as this is my year of freedom as I retire in March and then I will be able Enjoy my Vitara ( company car at present )
Is there a realy reliable parts supplier that the member's use plaese .
I may be a bit old school but I have bought Hylomar blue as it was the prefered type my late fanther  and I used, He was A hands on PHD mec engineer and I helped him build many interesting engines form Austin Seven race units for Dereck Warwick and the London To Sydney Hillman Hunters
 Opps ! im going on a bit so I'll close With thank's
