Is AlumaSeal Safe or is it like silicone?

Post by landisr » Sun May 15, 2011 8:15 pm

Any body know if the aluminum powder in AlumaSeal is safe for my 1500, or would the powder act like silicone antifreeze? I get an occasional whiff of antifreeze, and from what I've heard, there are a couple likely culprits, most likely buried in expensive areas. "Doing the right thing" would mean many painful and/or expensive manhours plus obscenely mucho bucks in parts ($115 for a shield, $95 for one connector, plus over 30 OEM hoses, o-rings, etc). My bike is a 94A, and I've owned it from new. It just turned 153,000 miles last week, and it runs great (48 mpg on one tank).

Your thoughts? Many TIA. Ron in MI
