I don't. Don't torque down those tiny bolts too much, gorilla tight and they'll break

Makes sense, you don't want them to stick. Never tried that

I like using grease also, keeps the gasket material soft and comes off easily.

Slight leak still-

There is a slight leak near the front/bottom. The mating surfaces look flat, torqued to 10 nm in cross pattern and the gasket is not pushed out...Any type sealer that can be used with the gasket to fill in irregularities in the case?
