    Default To use sealant or not?

    HI mate, i don't use anything on those type of gaskets or most for that matter providing you have a half decent surface.
    On my thermostat housings etc I just use a fine file to draw across the surface to take any high spots off usually around the bolt holes and I've never had an issue in 20 odd years of doing this.
