I have used this stuff many times with great success and no failures yet. Best to leave overnight or 24 hours if you can before filling with oil.

Puma 1.7 is a 2 piece sump using sealant as standard from factory. just a word of caution.In order to take sump off you have to take it off in 2 stages as one of the fixings are under the lowest part of the sump pan. So take lowest part off first then to the short block. Clean off all old silicone and make sure area is clean before applying new sealant. After you have taken all the bolts off as I remember there is a small tooth/leg on the side of the sump to help removal just leaver off it to help it come away. just make sure all fixings are removed first as it's an alloy sump and could easily crack.

Good luck.
