Owen, check with the place you buy your gaskets from. Some copper heads gaskets are already annealed when you buy them, and some companies don't recommend annealing their gaskets due to the engines repeated heating and cooling over time. Just make sure do as Travis mentioned and re-torque the heads after heat cycles during the breaking period.  If you have o-ringed heads or block and true surfaces (near perfect), it's not required to use any form of sealer.

Cheap aluminum spray paint, some use copper coat spray, but Ive had good luck with the aluminum spray paint and cleanup is easier I think.  Just clean the gasket with lacquer thinner, lightly scrub with a scotch brite pad, anneal, then re-coat with paint.  I start with 1/3 torque value, then 2/3, then full torque value.  After a couple heat cycles it's good practice to retorque again.  Key thing though, that your deck and head surfaces be true. Not as much forgiveness as a graphite gasket.  Can lap those surfaces just to be sure.

Do I use a dressing for the gasket, high temp silicone , I've heard of sprays? What works and can still be removed with out distroying it when needed? Do I torq to factory spec ? Thanks for any input.
