    Default Rocker arm bolt sealant necessary? 7.4 MIE

    1995 Mercruiser 7.4
    Inboard
    ser; 0F563022

    just found a manual that says to use perfect seal, I only used a sealant on the head bolts thru the water jacket. Didn't think the bolt holes for the rockers were in the jacket. These are bolts not studs.
    Will I see any problems if I leave them alone?
    Thanks

    I'd suggest getting another manual....

    Factory manual doesn't mention applying anything to the bolts.....as long as you didn't over torque them, you should be good to go.
