So , the dent /depression is in the head ?
I would say only put sealant over the dent and maybe just a smear 1 inch either way..
Cleanliness is critical ,,make sure you clean all traces of oil off the area with brake cleaner or non residue mineral turps.
Clear sealant is not usually used for engines,,,that could be a big part of the problem.
Use a quality gasket maker like I said in the other thread.
You can get tools like e torx etc on ebay ,cheap and quick.
Doing the breathers and vc gaskets is really a maintenance item on these M112 and M113 engines ,,,almost every one needs it done after about 10 or 12 years,,depending on mileage.
