We use this product regularly for sealing joints on engine build. It works consistently exactly as you would expect. The tube wind key is useful and helps to get it out, it is relatively immune to blocking the nozzle with cured product, but surely there must be a way of preventing this completely.
I recommend this product!
I like:always works
I don't like as much:bit messy

Hi I want to seal an oil sump with this how much do I use and how long do I need to leave it to dry before I can put oil in my engine and start it?

The contents of one tube will go a long way - should do several sumps with ease (don't put too much on 'cos it just goes everywhere). A generous smear/small bead on flat surfaces is enough. Don't leave it to cure, just assemble when you're ready - if you leave for more than 1/2 hr you need to start over. I would suggest that you don't refill and run for "a few hours" - overnight would be great.
