Port putty

Does anyone have any recommendations for a brand or type of filler to put in the runners of a manifold im modifying to match port filled 4V heads??
Is there any tricks to doing it?
Thanks.

Re: Port putty

I used selleys PlastiBond when I fitted my port plates and was told its compatible with all fuel types! Fit a allen screw or something similar to give it something to get a positive bond.

Re: Port putty

Manley make a product called "port putty" . I ve used Plastibond as well for repairing intakes and it worked fine.

Re: Port putty

I think everyone I know use Morosso Epoxy A + B. I personally hate the idea of grub screwing them to the heads but.
