Hey kiddies. Not wanting to pay ridiculous prices for spec'd sealants & gasket makers from Subaru? Then this is the thread for you. I called Permatex the other day and spoke with one of their techs. I asked him for their equivalents for the following Three Bond products:

1105 - rear diff
1215 - valve timing solenoid (AVCS), valve cover, oil pan
1216 - similar to 1215
1324 - rear diff

Three Bond 1105
Permatex ~29132 (closest they could come...he said very close. there are no resitrictions on this compound, including gasoline. It has a threshold of 400* F)

Three Bond 1215/1216
Permatex 82194 (this has a temp range of -76* to 482* F)

Three Bond 1324
Permatex 81160
Holdite S54
Loctite 542

Now, he also mentioned that they have a product called 'Right Stuff' (#85144) that is a "bead, bolt, torque & go" product. Very little set time, has a body to it (meaning it won't run all over the place) and can be used for rear diffs, oil pans and valve covers. It comes in black and grey; with grey being more specific to import cars. Can withstand 450* F continuous, with intermittent bursts to 500* F. You can use this product without the use of another paper/metal type of gasket. It can also withstand 16 psi. It also has a better overall resistance to synthetic fluids.

Now keep in mind, that these 'equivalent' numbers are a direct correlation to specific sizes of the product. Varying sizes may be available.

Also, if you are looking for a way to better your chances of having no leaks at drain/fill plugs, try something called 'TFE Paste w/ teflon'. It is a non-hardening compound that withstands:
- 3,000 psi on gases ranging from -50* to +400* F
- 10,000 psi on liquids ranging from -50* to +500* F

Can be used with water, steam, natural & LP gas, oils, fuels and dilute acids. It is safe for metals, pvc, cpvc, abs, pp (polypropylene) and nylon. So, my assumption being that this could be used for the following:
oil plugs (drain and galley (for gauge sensors))
tranny plugs (drain and fill)
rear diff plugs (drain and fill)

Subaru Three bond is one of the worst sealants I've ever used :-(

We use Hondabond on everything that requires sealant here in the shop.

hmmmm i will argue that and say it's 3M yellow weatherstrip glue. we call it monkeysnot. never will an oil pan leak again. nor come off lolol.

I hate when rare things are presumed to be desirable. For those who don't understand the difference...
It's rare that I crap my pants. It's usually not that desirable.

My neighbor's told the county that I was operating a subaru dealership/repair shop... snitches...
