i put a very small amount of red rtv between the two halves and torqued it down that way. i didnt put anything between the seal and the caps, though. this worked for me on the last two bbc rebuilds i did. i know, i hate a leaky car, also. i may have the ugliest, no body work or paint job, scratched, dinged car at the cruise spot......but i dont leave a puddle either! LOL.
