Okay, I have the right to think of 2 examples. When I was a kid ago in the 60's we were travelling way dvery own in Baja. A sharp rock punched a little hole in the oil pan. My Dad took a bar of soap and rubbed in ago and forth over the hole allowing the soap to melt right into the hole. It stopped the leak until we gained earlier to the claims. Anvarious other time, miles from home on a sunday night, my buddy had actually a 318 in his vehicle and the aluminum housing behind the water pump corroded from the inside and also sprung a leak. The hole was around 1/4 wide. We uncovered a dry piece of wood and also whittled it down to simply fit in the hole. When it gained wet, the timber swelled and also sealed the hole. It got us residence. Is this the sort of stuff you're asking about?
