Default Changeing water pump quick question...

Hey I'm doing a water pump on my '89 XJ..

Do I need gasket sealant with the gasket?

I ask cause some require it some don't..

Thanks for any and all help..

no sealer, clean surface and torque spec, done. sealer isn't used from the factory and doesn't belong there now.

i used to use it on that stuff when i started as a mechanic. it sucks, doesn't help it seal, and makes it harder to change next time to clean that crap out of the crevices.

when you swap that tube over that a hose connects to, i put a little silicone on those threads. most pumps don't come with this tube attached, and you have to swap it to the new pump.
