head sealent on #8 head bolt and gasket?

88 2.5l 5 spd.
OK I was reading my Haynes manual and it says that I need to spray some sealant on the head gasket but I see it says to put on dry in the box the gasket came in. Also will black permatex work OK for the #8 bolt on the cylinder head?

I would put head gasket on dry and I think #8 goes into coolant passage so you would use like a pipe thread sealant. That's my opinion

Yes the permatex will work just fine on the shank of the head bolts that go in a water jacket.

Head gaskets go on dry. It may have a top and bottom so look in the gasket
