Exhaust manifold surface?

Should I prep and paint exhaust manifold surface with prep and paint with 500 degree paint or go bare metal with the gasket?

Ceramic starter item

Can someone tell me what this is. It crumbled when I tried to remove it. I am not sure what to ask for at the local part store or if it is marine specific? Its for a 318 Chrysler motor I am rebuilding and is part of the starter circuit. Any advise on where to get a replacement would also be helpful?

Re: Replacing 2 Chysler 318's

I bought a long block from Rapido Marine (http://www.rapidomarine.com/) this spring. Its not in the boat yet but price was good at 1700'ish and shipping was about 150 from florida to kentucky. I've had a few questions and was able to call and talk a person. So far so good.

Oil pump torque?

I am putting a new oil pump on rebuilt 318 engine and the spec's say 35lbs. That sounds kind of light for something I really don't want to come loose once I have the engine back in the boat. I put some high temp lock tight on them. How tight do you guys recommend?
