Mine is in the middle? I'm not following. I have no idea what these engines are.
Anyway: a question about re-sealing the skeg.....seems like 3M 847 is the chosen "goop", and that's fine. I don't have any on hand, but I do have a can of Permatex Aviation #3. Will it work? Or should I just pick up some 847?
EDIT: Googling around, I find that 847 isn't nearly as readily available in stores as I thought it would be. If I can't use the P#3 that I have, is there a Permatex equivalent to the 847? Seems like everyone (Autozone, NAPA, etc.) stocks Permatex products...not-so-much with 3M.
