Polaris did use some sealer on the head bolts on the Liberty big blocks. Wouldn't hurt to add a little and then retorque the bolts after the sealer sets. I used a bit of RTV on mine...

I know when I do head gaskets on a car I always use thread sealer. Heading back to his place tomorrow to it it up for him.
