I`m getting ready to install my heads and manifold and I need to know what gasket sealer to use. I have black, red and blue RTV but they all say not to use on heads and any where it might come in contact with gas.Thanks,Tony

Permatex Form-a-gasket works best. Use it only at the rails {toss the cork away} and around the water outlets. Use nothing on the head gaskets. {make sure the 'Front' faces front. I'm sure you knew this but it's a common mistake so I thought I'd be sure}

A great tip is to use 5/16" studs to hold the intake gaskets while you lower the intake so they don't slip down.

Good luck!

That's about it. All I can add is don't use the blue if you can avoid it. It is the least resiliant of the Permatex silicones.
