Default Oil cooler clear silicone

On page 49-07 we are asked to run clear silicone adhesive/sealant (not RTV). If it isn’t RTV then what? Why not RTV? This might be the only place for this?

What a coincidence that I was working this very page today. I opted for the silicone as advertised because heat should not be an issue here. It seemed to fill the little gaps between the fins of the exchanger really well.

Default check the date on your silicone

My first try was some old/expired sealant. It never cured. After cleaning it off, the second try was fine
