    Default XU10 Bottom End Rebuild

    I'm building an XU10 bottom end and the new water pump comes with a fibre gasket. Do I fit it dry or rub a smidge of grease on both sides or a small bead of ThreeBond 1211 sealant both sides?
    Obviously don't want it to leak.

    Thanks

    I'd always use sealant!

    Thanks Roland.

    The supplied gasket is a different composition to the original metal one which didn't use any kind of sealant.

    I'll play it safe & use 1211 on this one.
