Do you guys recommend using a gasket sealer in addition to the actual gasket when replacing a '71 water pump?

Tom, I normally apply a thin coating of Hylomar to both sides of the gasket. It not only will ensure a good seal, but it holds the gasket in place.

Like BugEye I alsso use a thin coat of hylomar gasket dressing. Though it seems to be getting harder to find.

Kragen didn't have it, but they had a similar material. Seems to have worked OK. We'll see....

Thanks guys!

Permatex Aviation. Both sides, let it tack for half an hour.

Where can you get it Bill?

Everywhere. Autozone, NAPA, Advance Auto, Pep Boys, etc. It is dark brown gunk that seals like crazy. I have no luck with Hylomar, except in my tranny. I seal my valve cover and oil pan with Permatex Aviation. Never has failed me.
