Gasket question for the motor experts...

For the Head gasket, does it need to be sealed with "Perfect Seal #4" type sealant since it's in the 'hot' section of the power head?

Found these... But do I need to put anything on the gasket, or just as it is?

I have a parts catalog, but I don't have a service manual for the 1957 Evinrudes... does anyone have the torque specs/pattern for the head bolts?

Also, does it go on dry, or do I need to put any other gasket compound on it?

I buy it from TP Tools & Equipment in Canfield, OH. It comes in 25 pound boxes for $69.00 or 50 pounds for $95.00. I find 25 pounds is enough to fill my blast cabinet.
