i switched rear ends because of diff lock etc on a ford 3000. The gasket that I bought was from new holland and was a metal gasket from tranny to rear end. I did not put any goober stuff on it. I haven't added oil yet. Should I have used sealer? I cleaned pretty well.

I would have put some sealant on it, I hate taking something back apart because of a leak especially after you dump a bunch of oil in it.

"Cleaned it pretty well" may or may not be good enough no matter what. A 5 gallon pail of tiger snot won't make up for poor mating surface prep.

I will clarify my response. Surfaces were clean with no residual gaskets at all. My fear is that the new metal gasket from new holland would require a sealant to be put on. If the surfaces are clean is the gasket adequate without sealant?

You should be just fine without sealant.

I think I used a sealant on mine that was resistant to gear oil when I had to replace the lower link pins for the lift arms.

Today's Featured Article - The Ferguson System Principal An implement cutting through the soil at a certain depth say eight inches requires a certain force or draft to pull it. Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
