I found a 3.5oz tube of blue hylomar on ebay for a good price with free shipping a month or so ago. You could buy little tubes of it at Harbor Freight around 4 years ago but not anymore. I think Henry uses green Curil T on the base gaskets. I don't know, they both work similar.

Seems Hylomar is usually made in England. I think Rolls Royce invented it for sealing turbine engines many years ago. It can handle really high temperatures and never hardens. Always wipes off and cleans up easily with laquer thinner on a rag. I use it on all the gaskets accept for the exhaust manifold and turbo gaskets.
