I need to make a gasket on a vertical surface (differential cover on back end of a tractor). Are most gasket makers thick enough to be applied this way, or will they drip?

If some will drip, are there any meant for vertical applications?

To my knowledge, I've never seen any gasket maker slip or drip. It just doesn't happen. You need to find the right gasket maker for the application if you want it to work right. This answer I wrote a while back may help you with what exactly you might need.

  • Great, thanks, that's what I guessed, but I'm doing this work way out in the bush so I didn't want to end up out there with something that doesn't work for me. Appreciate the other answer, super informative. Commented Dec 27, 2022 at 15:37
