Getting ready to put all the stuff back on my engine. New pan, one piece trick flow gasket, water pump, timing cover, Edelbrock RPM intake. Whats the best gasket sealer for the ends of the manifold (in lieu of the cork gaskets)? There are so many choices. I have Edelbrock gasgacinch to use on the intake and water gaskets but I want to also use a little sealer on the ends of the one piece oil pan gasket? Thanks

Gm stuff is excellent, also "The right stuff" comes in a cheez wiz type can ive had good luck with that too but its expensive. It also depends where your going to use it on the motor, some sealers dont like gasoline

I prefer Permatex 3 Aviation Gasket Sealer. It's a quality product at a reasonable price (about $5 for a small can). Great all around gasket sealing compound for flat surfaces such as intake gaskets, pans, valve covers, outboard motor parts, you name it! But for the ends I'd use good ol' permatex blue or black. Works fine. Just personal preference as you can tell by all the replies you've gotten here. LOL

Big fan of GE II Silicone, Black, or clear available in a caulking gun at Home Depot, for short change.

Best silicone I've ever used.

i hear ya ragtop. everyone around here uses cheap old silicon around here on our dirt motors, and they see alky, must harsher than gas. We go out to the WAL-MART and buy DAP 50 year 100% silicone. Black or clear, makes no difference. It works just as well as permatex, or any other silicone type sealer, and it is only like 2.50 for a chalking gun tube.
