Red fipg part # is 00295-01281, we use it for re-sealing t-case's, diff's, etc. Red is more expensive than the black

Just an update, filled her up with oil tonight and so far (about 20 minutes of driving plus three hours of sitting with the oil filled) we are all good. Appreciate everyone's input, as well as the additions to the "tools I didn't know I needed" list :D

I went thicker on the bead (more like 6mm) and used the Permatex Ultra Black. Not sure if the FIPG failure was me or the paste itself, but I threw away the tube as I don't really think I made an obvious screw up (cleaned it up with brake cleaner extensively before both applications, etc.)
