    As many know I've been building a splitter for a long time. I had to reposition some fittings today and I'm ready to run the engine. The label on the Rectorseal says "gas and water pipe can be pressurize to 100 psi immediately. For other applications cure time can vary up to 48 hours." Can I run the engine tomorrow and get the air out? I'm getting itchy now.

    The RectorSeal worked great for me.

    http://www.gasoila.com/ waaayyy better than rectorseal #5.

    I use the rectorseal over top of tape (belt and suspenders ya know...) all the time on threaded domestic connections, but for gas and oil it's nothing but gasoila.

    Sorry...not sure I could get myself to use a product called "rectorseal". Sounds too much like a product old guys might use.

    Rectorseal is good stuff.

    "PST" is another high quality sealant, although typically harder to find.
