Don't but anything under the bearings themselves, it is paramount that the block and cap are perfectly clean before you install the bearings!!

I always clock my rear main seals so that the parting line is offset from the cap and block and a little bit of sealer on the seams is all I use. If your crank has a wear mark from the old seals, they do sell offset seals also.
