    Re: cam bearings

    Back when I worked on generators and large electrical motors, I probably used several hundred gallons of glyptal, both red and black. Some of my guys even painted a car with the black. You cut the last coat with more thinner and it shines nice. Its a tough paint. I have used it on a couple of engines, can't say I saw any improvement. The spray can glyptal was nothing like the mix and spray.

    You said: Loctite has a solution for (weld) porosity; might work for you...
    If you remind me enough, I'll remember to look at what "#" is on the bottle I have (it's their same solution you apply to assembled fasteners).

    Please consider this to be reminder #1.

    Noted; I pulled the bottle out, along with some red and yellow for an engine I'm building. Now to snap a pic and get it to you...

    Re: cam bearings

    Michael, the print is still legible on this newer bottle (came in a set of 5 of ebay) even though I'm still working out of a much older bottle...





    I apologize for image size, but in my haste to get these uploaded, I used Facebook, and they don't automatically resize the image to 640 x 480 like my website does. Once you've recorded any information you want, I can delete them if there're protests...

    I primarily use this product on assembled and torqued fasteners, where I don't have to be concerned about its fluid properties influencing the torque readings.
