  • Gasoila E-Seal
  • I had to replace the fuel shutoff valve and bought a 1/4 pint jar of this. I am still waiting for it to dry as the instructions says although you can expose it to gas immediately, it takes 48-72 hours to dry to the touch. I would rather let it dry as much as possible before filling the tank. Are there any other gas fittings I should apply this to?

  • So far so good! No leaks around the bottom of the gas tank where the shutoff valve is threaded in. When I opened the valve, there was a leak where the plug goes into the back and around the inlet to the elbow filter in the carb. I cranked down on both several times until the leaking stopped. Keep your fingers crossed...

  • Yes, I have used this stuff now for several years since firs discovering it. I have a pint jar that will last me a lifetime. I only use it on the Fuel Sediment Bulb NPT Male end that threads into the gas tank. Best results are to have an empty tank first. Clean parts that will mate. Apply GASOILA compound to male end and screw into female end. Be sure it is set where you want it. I keep the fuel shutoff valve facing out as designed for easy access. Let it set for a few days minimum. Once it dries it is safe to assemble fuel line and try out. I did my 8N years ago now and have had zero problems since. I have not used it on the brass elbow carb inlet or any other NPT threads. Carb elbow gets removed to clean now and then. With the diffy plug I just apply a dab of clean hydraulic oil on the male threads. Makes it easier to remove when changing hydraulic fluid. I do not use TEFLON tape, white or yellow on my tractor fuel lines. GASOILA is designed to work with gas, ethanol blended or otherwise. As Mike Nesmith said, I'm a Believer and I endorse GASOILA 100%...

  • I applied it on Wednesday and will try filling the tank today. it is still a little tacky, but I think it is ready.

  • I believe the pipe plug under the differential is a standard NPT (National Pipe Taper) fitting. NPT fittings should have thread sealant. The fuel elbow that goes in the carb and the fuel valve to fuel tank are NPTF (National Pipe Taper Fuel) connections. These are actually Dryseal fittings that are not supposed to need any thread sealant. On these tractors, I still use thread sealant on Dryseal threads because they have been taken apart so many times they need all the help they can get.

    I use the yellow tape packaged on a plastic roll just like the teflon stuff for water pipes. The tape works best for me since there are no issues with contamination or shelf life.

  • Re: Gasoila E-Seal
  • Thanks for the advice. I had already put everything back together in the transmission/pump and differential and filled it before the gas leak. So far no leaks from the rear end.

  • That's probably the only one. How have you been? We still haven't hooked up yet. Maybe some time in the future. I'm on US15 6045 W. Henrietta Rd. 1/2 mile south of Cartwright Inn. It has been closed for years.

  • Hi Richard, I am good. Between work and horses and a grandson I've been very busy. I live in Hilton off the parkway at 360 Moul Rd. The wife and I both work not too far from you next to RIT. I remember the Cartwright Inn when I was a kid. I would like to see you sometime, I will try to make it soon. We have to drive past your place tonight on the way to Avon, so I will look for it. Mean time, if you or anyone else around here needs to use some of that can of Gasoila, I would be more than happy to share. It says that it is only good for about a year...
