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.
yes, I've seen that little trick about offsetting the 2 seal halves so they don't line up with the parting lines. I'll do that.

What about a tiny dab or RTV where the 2 seal halves meet? Where the ends touch eachother?
