It's been a while but my recollection is that the four closest to the pump passages need sealant.  It' pretty easy to tell.  Stick a screwdriver in the holes.  The ones that need sealant are significantly deeper than the bolt is long.  Also, the bolts that came out of the holes that need sealant will either be rusty on the ends or break off.
