Wellseal Jointing Compound

Wellseal Jointing Compound

This product really is the Dog's when it comes to engine building. It is a non-hardening jointing compound, which is fine with higher temperatures making it suitable for the vast majority of applications on both classic and modern, air cooled and water cooled motorcycle engines and gear boxes. It was originally developed by Rolls Royce and is now made under licence. It is in it's element for joining the crankcases where there is not usually a gasket. It doesn't block oilways and is easy to use. We usually paint it on with cheap artists paint brushes which we buy from the cheapo supermarkets.

Especially with classic bikes, we tend to paint all mating surfaces with Wellseal, even when using gaskets. We even use it on head gaskets. It is a bit belt and braces, but you're far less likely to get an oil leak if you apply Wellseal as well as the gasket.

We don't tend to recommend the tubes as once opened, the stuff escapes out of the top and all over the shelf it's stored on - no idea why and loads of the stuff is sold in tubes. We prefer the tins which are far easier to use. We'll sell you tins or tubes - your choice!

Sadly the manufacturer of this product has stopped supplying the tins. We have explained our experiences to makers of this fine product and they will hopfully take our comments on board - watch this space!

Pro Seal Clear RTV

Pro Seal Clear RTV

This is an absolute must for every workshop. It has thousands of uses, from sealing alternator wires coming from an engine casing to ensuring an electrical connection is properly sealed against water in a vulnerable place. We often use it to seal the half round blanks on cylinder heads at the end of the camshafts. This is a quality American made product with no corners cut. We've been using Pro Seal RTV for years and never found it wanting.

It seals and bonds within a temperature range of -60°C to 260°C (-70°F - 500°F). It resists oil, grease, antifreeze and transmission fluids providing an oil and water proof flexible seal.

Connect Premium Threadlock & Seal

Connect Premium Threadlock & Seal

This is a medium strength thread locker and sealer that will work even if there is some oil on the threads, as there always is. In the real world none of us has the time to get all the grease out of the threads of a nut or bolt, so this is the solution. Clearly you dont want the threads filled with oil, but they need no more clearing than a wipe with a dry rag or wipe.

There is a common misconception that thread lock is only about preventing fixings coming loose; in reality it is also used to seal the threads which is of huge benefit on motorcycles. In many positions on a bike you have either stainless or mild steel bolts, screws etc in aluminium alloy components. Combined with moisture this sets up bi-metal galvanic corrosion, which is very bad news. This results in the destruction of the alloy threads causing weakness. If the threads are coated with theadlock and seal before assembly, the threads are sealed against the ingress of water. We always use thread lock and seal even if using spring washers etc.

Although buying smaller bottles is more expensive per ml, you don't really want to buy more than you will use in a year. Storing glues and thread locks in the fridge will extend the shelf life considerably.

Connect Studlock and Seal

Connect Studlock and Seal

Connect Studlock and Seal is a permanent thread locker for ensuring that studs don't come undone when you undo the nut on the end or vibrate loose. It will go off in about ten minutes, reach a good percentage of final bond strength within two hours and reach full strength in 12 hours. All times are based on average room temperature and when temperatures are reduced so activation times are reduced.

Aluminium Epoxy Putty Stick

Aluminium Epoxy Putty Stick

This epoxy stick is used by slicing off a lumpo, which is then kneaded in a gloved hand to mix the two component parts. it can then be formed into a shape. Where lugs etc have broken from alkuminium castings it can be used to replace the missing part. With materials like zinc diecast welding can not be carried outr so epoxy putty is the perfect solution. It can be drilled , tapped filled etc just like metal. It's obviously never going to be a strong as metal, but we have used epoxy putty often to repair damaged castings to great effect.

It is resistant to oil so can be used in engine and gear box components. 114g stick.
