anaerobic sealant?

I am about to reinstall my injector pump which had a clog. The mechanic that fixed it for me recommended using an anaerobic sealant where the machined flange sits on the block.

The Volvo workshop manual does not say to do this. I understand why the mechanic recommended this but am nervous to go against the workshop manual.

Any thoughts, comments, advice?

Thanks in advance.

Ron

I've used the permatex aviation sealant for many yrs in racing conditions far more extreme than the md7a I recently put back in my boat...its all I use now for everything...never had a failure related to its use.

Re: anaerobic sealant?

Loctite 518 Gasket Eliminator is just the thing for your job. It is intended to be used between metal flanges or plates.

This assumes that the parts do not have to be repositioned after assembly.

If so then Hylomar might be what you are looking for.

Not affiliated with either, but I've been using them for years.
