Which sealants do guys like to use on these parts.

1.Oil pan

2.Water pump,I've always used black.

3.Timing cover

4.Headers with out flat flanges My hedman hedders have a raised weld surface.
Should I use the paper gaskets that come with them?Or what gaskets would you guys use on these hedders.

1. Oil pan - grease to hold the the gasket inplace with black RTV in the corners.

2. Water pump - wheel bearing grease to hose it in place, no other sealant.

3. Timing cover - wheel bearing grease to hose it in place. No other sealants unless I am not removing the pan, then black RTV in the corners.

4. Header flanges/flangeless - Depends on whether they are to be removed numerous times or not. If they are to be removed a number of times like in a drag car, just good quality gasket like from FelPro and replace as necessary. If there are no plans to remove them, then something like the copper header gaskets or the 'paper' gaskets with the red hi temp rtv.

Just my ways is all folks....

Blue silicone, but just enough to make the gasket look wet, not enough to squeeze out during assembly, also let it set up for 5 minutes before assembly.

Would it be the same for street car and a race car?
My car is mostly driven on the street.

Ron,

I put gaskets on the same if street car or race car or family car and have never had any problems or leaks.
