The power of knowledge
« on: November 07, 2018, 08:56:20 AM »
Was washing my air filters last weekend and the glue on 3 of 4 of them let go! I came to this forum and searched the term 'air filter glue' In minutes I found some great info on what has worked for others. The mighty RZ may still get a run this weekend  ;D

Greg the 2 answers I got was others have had success with good old fashioned Tarzan's Grip and the blue glue you use to connnect PVC pipes. I bought some of both today and will be trying it tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes mate

I've always liked Tarzan's Grip. I suspect it is very similar to the bootmakers glue I got the good oil on for repairing plastic inlet manifolds (its fuel resistant)but I forget the important chemical component ????
