Default Engine block sealant, main bearing caps front and rear

All, I am looking for some assistance with sealing the block parts which hold the main bearing in my engine, there are some rubber seals but origionally there was sealant, a silicone type as it set but flexible, I was wondering what type I should use, I have hylomar blue but its non setting and was concerened it will not be suitable.

I hope that explaination is clear enough what I am after

Chris

Loctite 5900 is the industry standard engine sealant.

What engine is it for?

I remember years ago ( 40+) rebuilding engines and using rtv silicone jointing compound but the brand name escapes me.....
Dow Corning is a good brand as is Loctite, I'm sure other folk will have their own preference
