i am replacing the oil seal on my camshaft and the manual says that i should apply "liquid sealer" to the seal surface.

easy enough, but what the heck is liquid sealer?!?

any help would sure make the repair quicker. Thanks in advance.

Hmm, at the shop we use RTV silicone(black) on the outside of the seal and lube the inside with just a touch of motor oil.

What is formed in place gasket? Is it Toyota's code word for silicon sealer? GaskaCinch? In about 15 min I am going rip my motor apart to replace valve guide seals. Since I'm going through the trouble to do those seals, I am going to replace the camshaft seal, crank pulley seal, and timing belt/tensioner. Every other type of engine I have worked on that has the same style seals all go in dry on the outerdiameter, with a light coat of oil on the inner. These seals are a press fit, no?
