Water pump gasket sealant v12

So the water pump comes with a very thin paper gasket anyone have a preferred sealant that they use along with this and technique for applying ?


I typically coat both metal surfaces with “Permatex Water Pump and Thermostat Gasket Maker” before installing the gasket and tightening the fasteners. That has worked well for me on a few water pump replacements that had no leaks afterwards.


Just what I wanted to hear. Thank you sir.
