Anyone know who may if these in stock?
D0004001 and AKD45600002
Or do any over the counter sealants work?
Thanks Larry

Use the "Right Stuff" black sealant. The stuff that comes in the gaskets sets is no good. It's basically the GM black sealant - also goes by other names.

Haven't heard of it, I usually use permatex. Will the right stuff work on the head gaskets and head nuts? Thanks Lar

Here's a link

It's made by permatex. Use it to seal the head to the case and to seal the head nuts. I'm using it now to seal my 1.9L.

Here's a pic of Ben from Canada using it to seal a head. Check out his site - it's full of great info. -Jamie
