Hi there,
Started to assemble V6 (3.2) block and stopped pretty soon.
At the end of crankshaft in the block there goes some silicone. When dissassembled they were like silicone pins. Are these aviable somewere or i have to use engine silicone (loctite or similar) and fill those holes with it?

I just use an RTV sealant applied from a tube or gun as in the picture..

very easy to do
99% that will be the way i will do it. But will spend some time on research for best piasible sealant. Ax my mschanics are very vorried about this seal leaking after some time.

stripped to 100k engine this week neither was leaking from the seal.. one from the sump and the rear crank seal but that rear main seal seems good

RTV or similar are fine..
