Crankcase half sealant

Hi, I just wondered what you guys use to seal the crankcase halfs? I been reading about it and some say use silicone base, some Loctite 518/515 and blue hylomar.
Just wonder what your using?
Many thanks
Ian

Ian,
The past several years I have been using "Three Bond #1194".
It has been superceded by #1184.
