I used gasket maker a lot...Permatex stuff. Haven't had any issues with it on warm or hot areas.

Maybe you used wrong grade gasket maker?

Have you ever seen the Aviation Gasket Goo? It's easier to dismantle parts later as it doesn't harden. :D

Yep I used Loctite No. 3 which is a non-hardening aviation gasket compound for the top-bottom halves of the BBM.
