Most modern replacement intake gaskets usually don't need any sealant added to them. Years ago when the gasket material composition was a lot less sophisticated, a little "Indian head" shelack worked quite well. (Whew, I'm datin' myself now) Todays composition gaskets crush & seal better than the early days. Now on a head gasket, that might be a different story depending on what yer' workin' on....

Thanks Steve. Now would you put sealant on a head gasket for a 1941 C or a 1952 B? TractorMike

I did use a "brush-on" Permatex type sealant on the deck of the block on my B (1948) because these engines have removable liners in them and I figured a little sealant couldn't hurt around the area where the liners stick up above the deck just a fuzz. These little engines really work hard under load, and I think that a little sealant in those areas would help the gasket keep a good seal at higher combustion temps in a heavy work load condition...Again, it's up to the individual. I guess I'm from the "old school"...
