I remember a conversation I had years ago with a guy who had been stationed in Germany after the war. He told me that instead of using gaskets on crankcases that they, the German mechanics, would use silk thread with varnish to hold it in place. Now I'm not saying to use varnish which is very old technology, but with a good sealant that is gas resistant a string of silk thread might just do the job.

Just a thought.
