Default Which gasket sealer to use in place of fujibond

I previously read on one of the threads on here that there is a Permatex brand gasket sealant that is usable as a replacement for fujibond. Turninconcepts commented on the thread and I believe they said they used super grey permatex for their valve cover replacements but I can't seem to find the thread where they said that. Can anybody give some insight on this? Thanks.

Alright. Do I put any under the cam cap/bridge that goes across the front of the cam where you put the cam seals or do you just torque it down and apply permatex to the top of that and around the half moons (I've found diagrams of where to please it on top of the bridge but haven't found anything that mentions the bottom side of it so I assume you just torque it to spec)?

you have to put sealant on the main cam cap only. not the 2 small single cam caps.
here is a pic of how its supposed to be sealed.



put sealant there, then torque down. make sure not to make it too thick or you could block oil passages. also, when putting the valve covers on. put a little bit of sealant in the corner where the cam cap slopes down to the head. that corner needs sealant

^ I imagined there had to be sealant there. I discovered one of the journals in the cap has a chip in it fresh from the machine shop so I've come to a halt on the build sadly. Not sure what do to now. It's looking like I'll have to get yet another new head and have all my new valves/springs/etc switched over. Smh

Post a pic of the damage. Is it on a machined surface? Can you clean it up on a 12x12 1/4 inch piece of glass using 1000 grit paper?

Worked great for me too. I agonized over this when I did my rebuild and considered ordering threebond online. Finally decided to just give ultra grey a shot b/c it's much cheaper and easier to get (any Autozone should have it). 2 yrs and 25,000 mi after my rebuild, still seems to be working great. I used it on the oil pan, heads, and everywhere else it called for fujibond.
