The problem is not the "proper use of", but "improper use of". I have
used the blue goo for close to 40 years and never had a problem. I DID
see a problem in the kleb SDL turbo, where someone had way over smeared
the red stuff, nearly plugging the oil supply. None of that broke
loose or moved anywhere. It did severely restrict the oil flow, which
was already restricted by the hole in the gasket.
I have used it many times for things like vac pumps and water pumps.
I had a friend who had a sbc where part of the intake manifold gasket
fell down when he reassembled it. Rather than take off the manifold and
put the gasket in place, he filled the void with blue goo. It ran that
way until he sold it. I was amazed that it stuck, in that case.

I think this is more Dr. Marshall Booth lore (not to say he was right or
wrong, I think he was right on this one) as I could never find that
against RTV or silicone anywhere in the 123 or 124 manuals. Can you or
anyone point me to a reference or procedure?
