  1. Putting a water pump gasket on my truck, little thin paper thing. Do I need to smear it with silicone or something or should it go on dry?

    Thanks.

  2. you definately need gasket sealent, i use No.3 aviation sealent, it doesnt harden, and is easier to replace gasket when time comes.
    use it very sparingly though, otherwise you'll get flecks of sealent in your coolant clogging up shit. not cool
