    I use High Tack Gasket Sealant, the one on the right. It holds the gasket in place real well and it comes apart real easy as it never really dries. I put about a 1/2" wide bead on the bottom of the gasket and one on the suction housing to hold it and slip the pump in.

    Take some old carb mounting studs or pieces of 5/16-18 all-thread. Two will work, won't need more than four. Put them in the intake spaced at least several holes apart. Drop gasket over studs. Drop pump over studs. Loosely install a few bolts, then remove the studs and replace with bolts. No brainer. If you want non-stick, try some PAM from the kitchen.

    NO SILICONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!

    Yep, years back that's what Tom suggested I use...slather it on all surfaces and the excess will squeese out. Bone dry seal and easy to take apart!

    Make sure all surfaces are clean and dry. Put the gasket in dry, (no sealer). The gasket itself is the sealer, that's what it's in there for. If you have trouble holding it in place, tie the four corners down with some small cotton string, or use the studs like mentioned above. No need to remove the string, it will squash and cause no problems. This also makes removal a snap.

    Tommy used to use just a little skim of white lithium in different spots on the suction piece side to hold it from sliding if bumped while installing.

    As Duane & fleetmus said, the gasket itself is the sealer and were designed to be used dry.

    You could also use the adhesive sealant as well, but nothing is needed.
