What version of yamabond?

What version of yamabond do I need for a Puch E50 case? I used Permatex and had leaks everywhere so now I'll try the yamabond but it looks like they make 3,4 and 5 so if someone would advice me please.

Thank You

Permatex "Motoseal" is the equivalent, good stuff.

Ya never been a permatex fan.

Always had better luck with fel-pro.

Hondabond and The Suzuki sealer have always worked for me never tries threebond. Its what is used on engine case halves for motorcycles.

Last I heard yamabond3 was discontinued. Some formulas are non hardening and some are thinner.

Use your Googler. (edited)

Yamabond 4 semi-drying.

Re: What version of yamabond?

Thank You all. I can get Permatex Motoseal around the corner.

Re: What version of yamabond?

your local Yamaha dealer sells all of the yamabond products. just ask the advice of the oldest guy there

I used 4 on my actual Yamaha motorcycle gaskets and seals.

but that is a bigger hotter engine I'm guessing?

I'll ask around

You're wrong

ThreeBond 1184 is the factory formula that Yamabond/Hondabond used for years and is cheaper and available next day via Amazon.

Ha . You're a nice guy , advising folks to use something that has absolutely no business being around anything that resembles a motor .

If the big bikes use and have used it since production began , I'd put my money on what the OEM Japanese motorcycle makers use . That would be Yamabond 4, Hondabond 4 or near equivalent Permatex Motoseal . These will not turn to a thick jelly that breaks away and clogs oil passages and bearings like RTV will .

Yep.

In fact thats how I started using Hondabond and Suzukibond 30 years ago. They were listed in service manuals with parts numbers and recommended use on engine cases without gaskets.

The stuff worked on anything and didnt peel or come loose like rtv.

Silicone is ok for windows, doors and showers but not reaking havoc inside a motor.

I may still have some gorilla snot or yellow death hanging around here somewhere. Anyone here remember those.
