bolts

I also use the teflon liquid sealant. You need to be careful to make sure all the oil is off the threads and the bolt holes. I will wash the bolts off in the parts washer and then spray them down with brakeclean, also spray the bolt holes with brakeclean. and blow everything off with air to make sure it's dry. I will also use a small screwdriver and put some teflon paste in the threads in the block and also put some on the bolt.
