I've never spared the gasket sealer/cement. When I rebuilt the engine on my 2N three years ago, I plastered all of the gaskets with a big old bead of gasket sealer on both sides. I also put a thin layer of copper-based head gasket sealer on the head gasket, in accordance with the directions on the container.
When I bolted it together, the seepage around all of the sealing surfaces was a comforting sight to my eyes.
Sure, if I ever take it apart, it might take me quite a while to clean the gaskets again.
But, in my eyes, removing gasket sealer is temporary, a leaking gasket is forever.
If you can get them all to seal like they were meant to at the factory, I will be the first in line to shake your hand and say that you are a better mechanic than I.
Three years, no leaks, done nothing but use the machine and fiddle with ignition parts here and there...which, there is no magic cure for that.
