PTFE tape on a transfer box bolt

Recommended Posts

The lower bolt that holds the gearbox casing to the transfer box is weeping EP90 on my LT230. Will PTFE tape put up with the temperatures and oil if i put this round the bolt to seal the thread or would i be better smearing the thread in instant gasket before i tighten it up?

As Plumbers use PTFE tape on pipes and the likes for hot and cold water I'm guessing it should be ok.

That said I think I would try the PTFE tape first anyway and see how it holds up before using instant gasket.
