the job at our shop is about 800 totally done.
as far a sealant goes, only the edges get the sealant. there is no end gaskets. a couple of light dabs on the gaskets on the heads to hold the gasket, they sit in a dowel hole. do not mix up the push rods as they are different lengths. get a gm gasket set as they have new updated gaskets that include new bolts and torque values. take your time. it is a labor intense job but stright forward. just a lot of disassembly and re assembly.
