    Question I sure hope I did that right!

    So I got/installed my new exhaust coolant temperature sensor. The owner of the shop told me to use LocTite 518 on it. I couldn't find it anywhere and found through my search of the interwebs that Permatex 51813 is a good substitute. I was easily able to find that. So I got some.

    However, I was thinking that the stuff was going to be something akin to thread locker. But it is an anaerobic gasket maker. So I called the shop to see if I should be putting it on the threads or at the "base" of the sensor. Of course the owner was gone and the mechanic couldn't come to the phone. So I went ahead and put quite a bit of it on the threads since there seems to be a "crush" washer on the sensor. But I wanted to make sure there was enough to ooze out of the top of the bung and gasket-ize that area just in case it was needed.

    Am I so horribly wrong that I shouldn't ride the beast tomorrow?
