    I see that he is using 3M weather stip adhesive. I know thought that this stuff was yellow in color. Also there is an adhesive made gust for gaskets which is yellow also. The two might be the same stuff. What he is using is black.

    Look again. He does finally paint the heads and rocker covers in the last shot, but it's pretty obvious from the pic that he didn't even sand 'em first. :doah:

    I hear ya! I sand and paint damn near every part that I ever work on for any of my junk. :cool1: But then, I also keep my engines clean enough to eat off of. I HATE working on dirt and grease encrusted junk! :eek1:

    I have a tube of that stuff that I just used to put seals on my cab. It's black, and says so in small letters on the tube after the word "ADHESIVE". Works alright, but it's not real strong.

    Pretty good guide, following it for a 350 would be much different expect the torque specs might be alittle different.
