found this while searching myself.
"I do believe Yama-suzuki-kawa-ducati-bond is all made by ThreeBond and is the same product as ThreeBond 1104 except maybe for colour. I use 1104 for all sealing purposes and have never had a leak."

any truth to that?

I believe ThreeBond does make all those. I heard this also. Couldn't find just the ThreeBond here for some reason and it was easier just to drive over to the Yamaha store by my house anyway.

I believe that to be true. They appear to be identical.

I use Threebond 1104 on cases most times.

I just tried Loctite 518, which I have been using for almost everything else for a few years, on my pan cases. We'll see how it compares.

I like the Valco stuff....but can't remember for the life of me what it's called.Grey tube with red lettering.That was 2 years ago.Also,for a positive must not leak whatsoever kinda seal,Caterpillar (CAT Diesel) makes CAT gasket cement.Let it tack up,and you can pretty much attatch that 500 lb. oil pan to the block with no bolts.Use with caution though,or you will destroy your pristine Trump cover,BBC oil pan,Hemi valve covers or whatever.The shit is great,albeit expensive----and should be used wisely on auto and bike applications.By that I mean a very thin film.Use it on your lawn mower or your buds Ford first.

You could also do the fresh egg or pepper seal too_Oh wait....that's for the radiator---------in derby cars.

Has anybody here used dental floss as a case seal?

I friend of mine, with the cleanest chopper i've ever seen, uses it, and swears by it. His shit doesn't leak a drop.

When I put my engine together I got too scared to seal it with fuckin' dental floss...and used yamabond. It works excellent. Don't fix it if it ain't broke.

Hylomar sealant and dental floss layed in correctly (there is a wrong way). If it leaks or even seeps, I buy beer. I never buy beer.
