Oil drip stator cover

Just got my motor back in after replacing damaged stator cover. The very bottom bolt is dripping, about a drop every5 mins or so. Tightening the bolt did not help. I was able to get a small spanner on the bolt and back it out about 5/16 in. I have cleaned it off with carb cleaner and then lacquer thinner. Looking for a recommended thread sealant that someone has used in a similar application.

Wicker, San Antonio

PS for future ref, recommend anyone working on the stator , put the oil back before moving the engine back into the frame. At least 1 quart which showed my leak. And yes I did torque the bolts to book specs.

I personally like using Permatex Ultra Copper (101BR) Silicone on aluminum parts, but thats just me....I use Permatex Blue on steel (Copper on heads though).
