A thin coat of sealant about the water ports, if evidence of corrosion pitting, and as a substitute for the cork seals upon the "china-walls" to intake surfaces front & back, is as I would advise.

Also, note as to whether your engine has the alignment pin pressed into the block (front china-wall), to register the position of the intake upon mounting; if not, you will want to insert the distributor (dizzy) for referencing the proper front to back position prior to tightening the retaining bolts.
