New Water Neck Gasket

I am ready to install a new gasket
with the water neck that goes into the intake. I have cleaned both the bottom flange on the neck and the surface on the intake.

Should I use any kind of sealer with the new gasket ? There was no indication when I removed the neck that any sealer was applied just a make shift gasket someone had cut from a peice of thin cardboard material.

Thank's for any input you may have.

NO sealer needed. You can use a little RTV if you chose. No gaskets besides head gaskets will I use a sealer on.

Same thing. IF you make sure the flange is flat and clean you won't need it.

Thank's johnson

The flange is clean and flat. I'll nix the permatex then.

I always felt if you have a good quality gasket and the parts you are gasketing are clean & flat you shouldn't have goop it up with a sealer.
