Tecalemit filter housing on series one XJ6.
Replacing perished rubber drain hose to pan which was a serious leak source.
Now that I have it apart, do I just fit the gasket between the block and housing dry like it looks like it has been.
Or do I use a light smearing of some silicon?
I have: Yamabond R, permatex ultra black, permatex ultra grey, permatex orange, and my last tube of wellseal (which I normally only use for head gaskets)
Any quick advice would be greatly appreciated.
