I’m at the point of installing the water pump cover and the oil filter base on my BBi, both these parts use a gasket which were pretty hard to clean off but didn’t appear to have any sealant on them. Since these are areas under pressure and not accesible once the engine is in I’m feeling insecure assembling dry. Options I have considered: on the water pump gasket a light coat of hondabond, on the filter base gasket Loctite 515. My concerns: the hondabond may make removal difficult next time? The Loctite 515 is anaerobic sealant not designed to be used on a gasket, it may not dry or not adhere properly. Shellac might seem to be a lowly option on this kind of car. What are the proven choices on these areas guys?
