The only coolant system sealer I've ever used was "Alum-a-seal" which is a finely divided aluminum powder, nothing else. It never failed to stop the leak and never fouled a coolant system. I, and a half a dozen mechanics I've known, swear by the stuff. My Dad introduced me to it back around 1960. He'd been using it since air was new.

I may still have a tube of it somewhere....

But here it is..

I've seen all the others clog, fail and otherwise make a mess...

Terry,
Awesome build. I have the same castings but haven't made a chip yet.
Where did you get the prop?
Thanks,
Randy

This thread and Buchanans clock are my favourite builds.Simply because
they so far ahead of most projects and way beyond both me and many others
No disrespect to others but these two posts in particular bring to most model
engineers the heights to which mere mortals can go

I'd add George Britnell to the list of people who's posts I always read.

I must agree. This is the sort of heady stuff that keeps this mere mortal inspired...
