I just rebuilt the SUs for my 1275.  When installing on the  engine, do folks 
leave the gaskets behind the heat shield and on either  side of the spacers 
dry, or should I use a sealant on them?
If a sealant is used, what are your recommendations for type?  I have  a tube 
of Permatex "2" non-hardening Form A Gasket Sealant that says it resists  
gasoline and a tube of high temp. RTV silicone that states it is not for  
gasoline contact.  Sounds like the Permatex "2" is a possibility.   Others?
Thanks for your feedback,
John F.
