What is the best sealant to put the oil pump back on with? The anaerobic sealant it says to use in the Haynes manual, I cant find around here.

I don't recall what the Haynes manual recommends, but you can use any of these 3:

Threebond 1215
3M T-3 Silicone (black) #08670
Loctite-Permatex #599 Ultra Grey <--I've found this at PepBoys

Threebond is a Fuji-branded sealant and there's a part number for it which I think I have, but it's not worth the expense.

Anaerobic sealant can be found at NAPA (ask if you're not sure) and is the best to use. RTV will work. Anaerobic sealant if any gets in the oil will not clog up oil passages or get stuck anywhere like RTV can, that's the only difference. that's why they're telling you to don't over-do the RTV. if you do and excess gets squeezed into the oil supply that's not a good thing. there's a picture on yahoo XT6 groups of a glob during a tear down someone did after a glob worked it's way into the engine. I used RTV for a number of years, i use anaerobic now because i have it on hand.
