I am replacing the head gasket on a 1960 diesel fordson super major, i am new to this kind of work and i ask, do i need any kind of gasket sealer like permatex for the head gasket, manifold gasket, thermostat gasket or valve cover gasket?

Head gasket, copper coat, but not really necessary, manifold gasket, no. Thermostat, non hardening Permatex. Rocker cover gasket, I usually stick them to the valve cover with contact cement, and a light coat of non hardening Permatex on the head contact surface.

K-W Copper Coat spray.. Identify top of head gasket and spray both sides of head the gasket.. Will fill in uneven spots in the surface and seal... Good stuff..
