Question on Belt Pulley install

I have a belt pulley for my D14 that I picked up on Ebay. It came with the shim pack and they appear to pulled it back sufficiently. I'm getting ready to install it now.

The shims and pulley casing show no signs of any sealer being used. The I&T doesn't mention sealing in installation either. The machined surfaces are excellent, but the condition of the shims suggests to me that it might weep oil. I was going to use teflon thread sealer since the bolts have wet ends in the torque tube, but I'm wondering if I should use a very light sealer between and on the outer surfaces of the shims to seal that case up? Using a sealer would make reshimming later very difficult, but I don't want it to leak.
Anyone know how it was done originally on the D14, 15 and 17? I have noted that AC used shellac on the shim pack for the steering gear. It was present between each shim.

I am pretty sure the factory installed ones had shellac between the shims. I use copper coat or just paint, usually silver. No reason other than we always used silver. LOL
The copper coat is easier to get back apart.

Thanks for the response.

Yes, there was no wear on either gear, which makes sense for my mainshaft gear, but apparently the belt pulley I bought was virtually never engaged as it had no wear signs either. The entire shim set pulled it back a slight bit further than the gap in the case when bolted in without shims and engaged.

You may or may not need all the shims its like setting up a rear in a truck.Slide the pulley in with no shims to start and check for backlash.

Correction, what I meant by "pulled it back" was that according to the shimming procedure, the shim pack correctly positions the pulley.

most every one back then used shellac between each shim, I use metallic silver spray paint on both sides of each shim, and re-assemble while still tacky, never had a leak even on axle housings.
