I recommend going to the store and getting a proper sealant. adhesives are generally used just to fill a gap, while sealants are more used for actually fully sealing the gap off

Husqvarna LR12 transaxle - isthere a gasket between the case halves /

ring husqvarna spares to see if there is one available
if not most manufacturers just use a quality adhesive sealant like loctite blue or red as the housing faces are machined to close tolerances
might even be a rubber "o" ring in a groove so sealant will not be necessary

My waterrower has a leaking seam in the plastic tank. I know its not that expensive to get it fixed, but its a big hassle...80 mile round trip in heavy traffic. Is it ok to use plastic sealant like you use...

I sealed my tank seal permanently and also fixed cracks on the bottom with Loctite PL Marine Fast Cure Adhesive Sealant. On the inside when the tank was apart I glued a heavy plastic patch directly over the cracks in the bottom. I made the patch from a flat section of plastic cut from an old refrigerator crisper drawer. After installation with the tank laying flat and level glue the upper side of the tank to the adjacent wood for stability. Wait a few days before filling. Photos are attached.

Why is my lexus ls 400 trunk leaking

ls 400 - trunk leaks water. Fix -- Under the trunk seal at the bottom/rear you'll see that two pieces of metal come together. The adhesive / sealant that is used at the factory seems to leak with age. pull off the seal and use a good adhesive sealer to prevent water from leaking down between the two pieces of metal. Reinstall the trunk seal after it has dried and set properly.

With a cracked tub o a washe tuber, is replacing the tub the only solution, or is there some type of sealant or adhesive that could be used?

You may use a two-part epoxy adhesive/sealant but the cause of the crack must be addressed first. The tub will eventually be damaged completely if there's an issue with the inner basket banging the sides of the the tub. Address any balance issues then take the tub out to apply the sealant properly.
