From the guys at THR. Some neat build lapse time video and some good on track action as well.

I spray Permatex copper spray-a-gasket on all my copper gaskets, even the copper exhaust gaskets.
Never had a leak. The gaskets come off easily on any later rebuilding.
BTW...using on the exhaust gasket makes them tacky enough to hold them in place while mounting the header.
You can't see it in the picture but there is probably a degree wheel on the other side attached to the crank and he is degreeing (sic) the cams.the-chauffeur said:Something about this video has been making me scratch my head a lot . . .
. . . at about 2:30, our mechanic attaches what looks like a dial gauge to the top of the engine and takes a number of measurements whilst (I'm guessing) rocking the cam very gently back and forth around the timing mark. He also seems to adjust the cam chain tensioner during the same process. Trouble is, the time lapse, coupled with the camera being at the wrong angle doesn't give a clear enough picture of what he's up to.
So what is he up to? Is it something to do with measuring TDC in relation to valve position? And how would I go about doing the same?
Just wondering, like . . .
