    Trying to glue a gasket onto the bottom of my garden-sprayer-pressure-bleeder's plate, and everythign I've tried comes off pretty quick. Brake fluid is gnarly stuff!

    Seems like any of the silicone caulks are out, and some epoxy I had left over didn't work, though that might have been age or operator error :rolleyes:

    Liquid Nails? Caulking NOT based on silicone? Elmer's? Any ideas?

    could try some urethane... forms of it include windshield adhesive, marine 5200 from 3M, etc... might even try some contact cement...

    JB Weld might work.
