We use and like Permatex Black RTV Sealant.
Apply a coat to approx. 3/4's of the threads, starting from the bottom, making sure all the thread grooves are filled without any excess.
Then coat the bottom of the bolt head, above the washer with either 30w motor oil or ARP assembly lube. Whichever you use, there are different respective final torque specs for each.

Ron,

Is that regular Black RTV or "Ultra" Black RTV? I've found the Ultra RTV brand to be much superior to the standard RTV.

Ultra Gray RTV works nicely too.

We use the Ultra Black for sealing oiling areas such as the intake gasket ends, rear main cap, and etc.
The Permatex Black RTV sealer (not Ultra) is what we use on the head bolts and studs.

If you want, I can give you the Permatex P/N for the sealant we use on the threads.
