Default Glyptol

Anybody know where a good source is? Or is there something I can substitute to paint my engine valley? What I have is dried out and I bought it many years ago but dont remember where.

Evidently Glyptol (glyptal) is a GE product. You might be able to find it at an electrical supply wholesaler. Check GE websites to see if you can find a supplier.

I thought they used a Rustoleum product?
Never thought of using Glyptol.

Old old technology but the stuff wont come off and is well suited to seal in any casting sand and keeps it from rusting too. The GE site was a flop, their search engine bombed. I'm gonna call some of the electric motor rebuilders. Thats what it was designed for.

Still no luck, any other ideas for painting the valley of a big block? It was severely rusted when removed (condensation)and I dont want it to happen again. Thanks, Tom

OK, I found it.
Spent 30 min searching the 'net for it. Spellimg was wrong, it's GLYPTAL.
Eastwood Co. carries it. Here's their address.
Just do a search for Glyptal.
