Well, I attempted to fix the water plate again this weekend.
Joeyf had a great suggestion of using the Aisin FIPG and no gasket. I'm going to try this next, with the thread sealant gnarls recommended (not leaking from the bolts)

What I did try? I used the gasket (correct one) and that copper spray I've seen recommended before.
Used silicone on the bolts like LCE said. Still leaks.
I made sure to snug the bolts, cleaned the surfaces...
The mounting surface on the intake for the water plate is a very smooth surface.
Debating what I should do. Maybe I'll ditch the offenhauser? I'm certain it's the issue.

At this point, I'm very close to selling this truck (open to offers, I know I'll only get maybe 2K)

How am I supposed to rely on this turd when it leaks?
