So I put a new water pump on my 216. I was advised not to use any gasket sealer but now there is a small drip coming from the bottom right bolt. Do you guys normally use gasket sealer or did I just not get it in exactly right? I ordered a new gasket but prefer to only do it once more.
sorry to hear about your leak, normal threads don't seal by design, so if a bolt going into any liquid i put some permatex onto it first. when i replaced my water pump i put a slick of that stuff everywhere, i don't think there is a particular reason not to, except it makes it more difficult to remove in the future perhaps there is other reasons, but mine works fine with goop -s
