    I should have deleted the post in the old thread instead of just closing the old thread. Now you answered the same question twice, Chris. Yesterday and today.

        In any case thank you ! I had that thread open in another window and mistakenly tagged on to it instead of this post.

        Time to put the rocker arms in and see if she seals.

        temoted to just do as you said and Rodger about it but will run with rocker cover off to check

          Do those over any advantages over perfect seal ?

            perfect seal is permatex #3. I just refuse to spend $23 for a re-labeled $6 can of permatex.

              Good call Scott.

              i got down today and re sealed and re torqued all the bolts one at a time to be safe. I did this cold.

              result is good no leaks at all
