      The Grey RTV did the trick and has been leak free. Used the old fingers to shine up both sides and assembled.

      In Florida in high heat and after many heat cycles, the housing WILL crack over time, along with other plastic components. They get brittle. Trust me.

      I have never broken any, but removed plenty. That is to say that there were times I thought they were going to break. I don't have the "special Tool" but usually always need a twist back a forth to...

      It's more that "you shouldn't have to" and some may shun you just because of that... But I don't care about that. Then again, the factory cover shouldn't warp, the factory seal shouldn't shrink up,...
