    Hey guys, I just recently bought a G Force T5 to go in my car. I pulled the tailhousing and the top cover just to inspect everything inside before I get around to installing. Now it is time to put the cover and the tailhousing back on. According the the T5 rebuild manual I have, it calls for Loctite 598 RTV sealant, which I cannot find at Walmart, Ace, HomeDepot or Autozone. It is available over the web. Have any of you used something different with lasting results?

    I've always used Ultra Blue, preceded by a good cleaning with any brand Brake Cleaner.

    Yep. I already bought 2 quarts of it. Not cheap stuff.
