it is a press fit design, shouldn't need anything on it.
Thanks man! I got it in, after sanding and filing the end down a little. Some research taught me that the chrome plating on tube could be the difference in whether it goes in or not. I tried and tried, would not slide into engine block hole until after I removed the chrome plating from the area right bellow the "block stop" on tube. I had to loosen headers, as the stop would not clear when headers were bolted in. Def a very tight fit, but it's done and I can move on
