I don't recall the manual saying to use any loctite on the front cover?

Yes loctite is a coating you put on the bolts to keep them from backing out due to vibration. But I have recently been doing some work on the front cover and I don't remember having to coat the bolts with loctite.

Your right, you do need loctite, an auto parts store should have it, I am not sure if they are labled what type they are (527) but they are marked for the size of the bolt. Now it also says to use loctite on the long water pump bolts, everyone that I know that does this coats the bolts with right stuff and not loctite because it seals the bolts up better. Doesn't say anything about using sealant on the gasket, I can't see it hurting to use it but I wouldn't worry if there the joining surfaces are both smooth.

Really? We're supposed to use a threadlocker on it? Never put any on mine, will check those bolts soon. I used anti-sieze but not a threadlocking type.

I used one of the brush on type hi-tack gasket sealants, worked great. I hate the tubed stuff.

Mine had anti-sieze on the header bolts already when I had to remove them, very glad about that too... I hate header bolts and was paranoid about them being very stuck. I WISH they had been on my intake plenum, they were all siezed between the head of the bolts and the upper plenum. Thankfully I only had to cut off 1 of them.

Some of the waterpump bolts are not into blind holes and actually penetrate the water jacket. I believe Loctite 572 is pipe thread sealant (White). That is what we always use.
