406 motor with arp sealeant leaking

I removed each stud 1 at a time cleaned off that arp crap and i mean CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!! The studs had full sealant on the threads when i removed them ,there is no reason for them not to seal except the product dont work !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!when I told the parts store what i used they all looked at eachother and said another day another person .Yea your not the only one .They all said permatex #2 so thats what i used .I covered the threds installed it ,than removed it added more and waited a few min for it to get tacky then reinstaled to tork 80 ft lbs.Looks good feels good so far

It feels good to get that anger out .

But my Q is i took out the penn break in oil that had water in it .Not that much but i just dont ike the idea of water oil mix .Arter only 4 start ups can i put regular oil in it or should i replace the break in oil ?

Yeah......where'd the water come from? and if you havent finished your break in (20 min. 2500 rpm) Id put break in back in and start again.
Again, what studs let the water in? Head bolts?
