I wouldn't be afraid to keep using the white stuff to seal the case but I would try to use less of it. You have quite abit squishing out into the case. Also it should not be used all the way around the number 8 main bearing like you did. This area is sealed with the O-ring. The bearing can and does move and the sealant is not meant for a moving area.

With the amount of power you are looking for I'd shuffle pin. The shop I use did this for me an I think it'll cut down or eliminate the "fretting". Only draw back is the you'll probably need to have the case align bored to the next bearing size and the over size bearings are expensive.
