It may work, so I could be wrong.
The RTV black could have been used instead and wouldn't have cost you anymore. Anyways, its always good to have around. You'll need it someday. I like Permatex 2.
Yes, Permatex 2. That was my mistake for missing it and assuming thread locker would do the same thing.

Then I better correct this now. Though it did seems to squish a bit, but that could just be my imagination.

I misunderstood. I thought the Right Stuff was the gasket maker stuff. No wonder the ARP bolt wouldn't fit. I will correct this.

Ok, everything else will be on hold until I fix this.

Thanks for catching all this!
