Synthetic rubber cement

Recommended Posts

Started building my Re Re Top Force today (Yay) and instructions say I need synthetic rubber cement. Is there a common name for name for this like evo stik that I can get from screwfix or b&q or is it like a bike inner tube repair kit glue? Or am I totally wrong?

I've always assumed they meant air-curing silicone like the stuff you use to make gaskets and what not. I usually apply black RTV silicone on the spline interfaces, and have never had any issues.

Is the glue that is commonly used to fix a bike tyre suitable? This is the only product I can find that is referred to as ‘rubber cement’. Have any members had success using such a product? Also wondered whether a thread lock would suffice.

where and on what are you supposed to use it. Rubber cement to me is either tyre repair contact adhesive or Copydex style glue?

To my understanding most people yours truly included use cyanoacrylate super glue to attach the outdrives to the diff. Just construct the ball diff first without glue and once ready, install bearings and finally glue. Be careful not to glue the bearings to the shaft.

Without gluing, there is a  tendency for the diff outdrives to move just enough for the spines to get destroyed.
