The threaded boss of the intake studs on my brodix aluminum heads go thru to the intake port. what would be an appropriate sealant to use on the rocker stud threads? thanks

Hundreds of choices, Permatex and 3M make some great thread sealing products used for hydraulic applications which will not leak and offer some thread locking ability. Then there are anerobic sealants that only cure once out of exposure to the air. Some people even use liquid pipe thread dope, others use non-hardening sealant.

The only thing I wouldn't use is silicone.
