Actually, the snotty stuff is used by some mechanics to glue down one side of gaskets, making installation easier. It's nice because it resists oil (and water).

Here's my problem, these seals keep coming off. I have used the 3m 8002 but from what I see here most use the 8008 adhesive. Is there really that much difference or am I doing it wrong

Another old thread, but would this suffice for an adhesive?

That's why the black stuff is called "Super".

And besides, the snot stuff is exactly that, snotty.

I've used the black 3M for years, mostly on Street Rods. Most weather strip is black. Besides the great holding power, the black doesn't show like the yellow. It's just better all around.

Maybe so, but it doesn't taste nearly as good!
