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
