    I'll have to go back in my shed and find the stuff, I know I still have it, lol. I don't think I ever used it again after that.

    5 Twins. It's ok, save yourself a trip. I had decided If I ever had to pull the jugs off without breaking a fin, I wasn't going to use something like Yama bond, 3M or anything that would make the jugs harder to get off. As wide as the gasket contact surfaces were I figured I could get by with oil and let the torque seal it.. I mean, I never heard of using oil as a future release agent until I saw people using it here on this site for their sump and case covers and such. I always wanted my surfaces grease and oil free, as clean as I could get them. So I thought that was the source of my creep. Silicone would probably do the same.
