Datsun Permatex Gasket & Freeze Plug Dressing

Dressing is a brown color aviation dressing that many automotive engine builders prefer over the older automotive dressings like Gasgacinch. Bit higher price too, but you get 16 ounces in this packaging.
Quite frankly more difficult to remove at later engine disassemblies because this is stout stuff. Requires the user to use the product sparingly as excess amounts will stain aluminum surfaces and be very noticeable. The only product I will use when installing freeze plugs is that good. But then again what do I know?
