Silver Seal Temp Fix?
Posted December 30, 2006 - 05:33 PM
Back in the 4x4 days, I used to carry a product called "Silver Seal" to put in my radiator should it get damaged. Had to use it a couple of times, and it worked well as a temp fix to get back to civilization. Does anyone have any experience using this stuff on bikes? Will if gum up the waterpump or do any other nasties, or is it safe to use as a temp repair? It might be a good thing to throw in the backpack for emergencies...

I too saw the quick dry JB weld in the store recentlly I think you would have better control on your repair (radiators and cases) in the field with epoxy.
The silver-seal and also Aluma-seal would fix fine cracks and small fractures in the radiators better than Epoxy.
My 2 cents Aluma-seal for fine cracks and quick JB welb for bigger cracks and holes.
