So I had some questions about changing the head gaskets on a 1987 351w (E4 casting on the block, E7 on the heads)

Doing a little research on the topic I found conflicting information

1) do I need to dab a little RTV on the tips of the lower head bolts?

2) I am supposed to dip the bolts in oil before trq? Will the RTV take the place of the oil in the lower bolts if I need RTV on them?

The head gaskets were intact when I removed the heads, I am simply inspecting and regasketing the engine as I am helping a friend find a good motor for his 69 XR-7 cougar.
