Not perfect yet.

Used lunch time and drilled a hole thru the quiksteel till hit shaft, then put MOTORCRAFT TA-31 into syringe, heated in microwave for like 45secs, then quickly squirted it into hole. No idea if really got it all the way around shaft. But let's see if TA-31 can even keep the filled hole sealed.

Which quiksteel did u guys use? The easy one to find, under $10, was this:

I added photos to imgur. But when I paste the link into the pic icon, it doesn't work.

Update: I can now drive with windows and sunroof open and no exhaust smell!

If I only have sunroof open, I can slightly smell exhaust.

And I checked the quicksteel and the Motorcraft TA-31 sealant and it is all in tact. The sealant isn't even mushy. That stuff is amazing.

Time will tell how long it last but on a 90 degree day (worst case scenario) it is working great
