I’m putting the engine head in tomorrow.
I’ve read the posts on the use of grey prematex at the rear of the head gasket.
I didn’t seem to get a gasket for the thermostat assembly where it attaches to the engine, so I’ll have to make one out of gasket material.
Is there any sense to using any type of gasket sealer on the intake manifold gasket. What about any gasketed areas like the thermostat housing for that matter?

That's your call on the head gasket, I have never used any there. Just don't let it get into any circulation holes, like oil, or coolant.
On the intake, yes but I use the old contact cement type, but just don't make it too thick and don't let it get into the holes.
On the Thermostat doesn't it use a rubber ring?

The thermostat assembly mounts to the intake, it uses rectagular 1x2" approx. gasket.
I don't plan on using anything on the head gasket except the grey permatex toward the rear as specified.
