Working on my Tilt & Trim, and had to remove two of the bolts that mount the engine bracket through the transom. Did this a couple years ago.

Someone on here recommended a particular sealant for re-installation. and it was one "type" over another.

What was that? My manual recommends Loctite Type A, but this was something else, and I would like to go back with the same material. It is white.


I'm glad there are wine drinkers in this world ..... it saves more beer for the rest of us.

I'd go with the 3M 5200 on bolt shank and washers/transom stiffener. Don't put on threads.
