the bead's ID mean inside diameter. BTW.
RTV saves time and softer and is best one in limited time of repair on easy types. Epoxy is wasted on these small parts, for complex parts like transformer, coils etc sure, and is needed to have a vacuum chamber and potting epoxy that resin makers uses to degas their projects if you know of one locally. Then head out there and prepare the resin pot and put the whole thing in and degas it and pull out and let it cure then scrape the pins clean or put it on stand so pins is not wetted by resin. Best way since you cannot get to all the cavities without the vacuum pot method.
I know this as I had some loose transformers needs this but takes long time to get this right.
Also, I had to prepare the removed deflection yokes that were noisy by carefully cutting few holes inside for varnish dip. Heat the yoke coil then dip. Takes 2 days to do, three dips.
