(quoted from post at 09:33:38 02/20/1Cool OK, DB...Thanks for the reply. So no sealant on PTO or Inspection Plate gasket I assume? The bolts for the pump were cleaned of all oil residue before I put them back in. I will pull each bolt individually, confirm they are still clean and dry and then replace with sealant moving on to the next. I have on hand both Ultra Grey RTV and Copper Coat Gasket Compound. Is one preferred over the other (or something different)? I also replaced the test port fitting with a stainless 1/2-20 3/4" bolt with two bronze washers (the bolt bottomed out the threads in the port without any washers and I could not find a 1/2" bolt) and put some Ultra Grey RTV on the threads hoping that will do the job.


I would not pull them to put sealer on them especially if you have oil in it. I have done two so far without sealing the bolts and have had no problems.

I put my new PTO in without sealant, and it hasn't leaked yet. that was six years ago.

Tanxs, HF. Yeah there wasn't any on the old one, nor was there any on the inspection plate gasket, so unless it was suggested otherwise I planned on going without on both. Fixing leaks was my main goal when I started this project and hoped to get this right in just one go. As such I figured it best to ask Bruce (and others) why/where he recommended the sealant.

I haven't done anything since bolting the pump up into place, so no oil in play just yet. I was hoping to install the PTO and fill it with oil today, but this rapid change in weather has flared up my sciatica. Hopefully tomorrow will bring some improvement and I can get er' done.

Thank You for the replies!
