    No form-a-gasket!

    Use any type of brush on gasket sealer.

    For those types of water pumps that use a thin rubber o-ring material type gasket, I use windsheild adhesive, to hold it in place. It's the first thing I do, when I open the box. Install that type of gasket to the pump housing. It'll be ready when you're ready to install the housing.
