Default What sealer on galley plugs?

What sealer should I use on the little allen head galley plugs? It looked like locktite blue but will that seal the threads also?

It's a bitch to get them out-I snapped one 5mm allen adapter and twisted another before I got all 13 out. But I had a motor that shelled a bearing and with a new sti block wanted to make sure even though I had cleaned the passages with solvent and air.

AFAIK, the factory manual specifies Fuji Bond RTV sealer.
