Re-assembling a motor
The motor is a 66E. When putting the fresh base gaskets on, should I use a gasket sealer? Or can these gaskets be put on, torqued down, and promise a good seal themselves when I put the cylinders on? All of my gaskets were ordered from Gaskets Technology.
Also, does anyone have a list of torque specs? Particularly the cylinders bolts, the head bolts, and exhaust manifold bolts?
Or, can anyone direct me to a service manual online for the 800 or 1200 powervalve motor? I tried searching this website for a manual because I though I had read that there were some online manuals available here on the how to section, but I can not find it with the search function.
Thanks for the input!

You're going to get both sides of the aisle here. I use copper spray on everything, others don't. I don't think there's a wrong answer.
I know there's a service manual online somewhere. Maybe RX951 will chime in...

I have used copper spray, no coating and waterproof grease per Lowells recommendation on the base gaskets and no leaks with any of the methods.
I can get you torque specs in about 4 hours if someone doesn't chime in sooner

Got it back together, I just used the red permatex spray, I had it already laying around and it's worked well in the past. I got it all together last night then pulled the carbs off to rebuild before I drop it back in and I found a broken reed
