I used a very thin coat of this very thin liquid sealer. I let it set 
as long as it takes to put the halves together.
I hope it is acceptable. My last rebuild ...I think I did the same,
the results were highly satisfactory.

I have installed the crank, cam and dist as Russ explained in 
his last e-mail.

Did you get anything balanced? CW crank? Full flow filter?

Yeah the machine shop that sold me the hydraulic cam, had literally 
hundreds of cams and gears organized in an orderly manner.
He knew precisely what to do and did it for me. I verified the fit too.
