    Default Breather gasket or not?

    Got some new to me breathers. Whats the best way to keep from leaking? Use a gasket(what type) or just use some Right-Stuff and bolt down? Or Both? Thanks for any help. Johnf

    I use clear silicone carefully applied so it doesn't show.

    I use gasket maker. Let it skin over a bit then clean the excess off the next day.

    I have breathers very similar to yours that I bought from Rex, mine had an o ring on the bottom side that sealed perfectly with no sealant required. I mounted mine on the upper vertical surface closest to the intake to put them behind the oil spray coming from the valve train.
