Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I see that you have been waiting a while. Give me a moment, please, while I retrieve some information for you. As far as the cam seals go, you will not be putting any sealant on them, the cam or the sprocket.

What sealant is recommended for the valve cover gasket? I have a new gasket but the head has a small little nick at the narrow sparkplug area so to prevent a leak going to put some on it
Ford Mechanic: Todd M, ASE Certified Technician replied 17 days ago

The same gasket marker/silicone will be use for the valve covers also.
