Anyone ever do this on a 3800?
How thick a bead ( 1/8" or 1/4") and did it look nasty after?
Any thought as to why GM didnt just run a bead across the ends.

I usually apply a small bead to the corners where it meets the metal gasket, thats about it....
I love the right stuff (until i have to remove what I used it on) But I dont think I'd use it on the LIM...
Oil pan sure, LIM not so much...
Your car makes small children cry.
His dog ran away and didn't come back for a few hours on the first fire up too. It was awesome.
When babies cry and animals flee, you know you did something right
