      I've used many types of gasket sealant. Do anyone know if there is a such thing as gasket sealant in a caulking tube?

      I pretty much only use "right stuff" which is from permatex. They have it in a cheese wiz type can and a small caulk gun type cartridge.

      Its the only stuff I use anymore.

      I've been putting together Kohler engines which don't use oil pan gaskets. So you use gasket sealant.

      Thanks for the replys. I like using the small tubes that came in the head gasket kits for the explorer. Bigger the tube, more can dry out if you forget about the top.
