I'm sure this has been asked a zillion times.
Should I be using the silicon sealants when replacing the gaskets?

It all depends. As Bruce indicated different things for different seals. It also depends on the situation.

For instance, the book only specifies using a gasket on my governor. However, the governor flange is warped, so it doesn't seal with just a gasket. I used a thin bead of Ultra Black RTV on it and it doesn't leak a drop.

As a writer once told me, words matter, as does spelling.

Silicon (said with a short o) is what electronic chips are made of.

Silicone (said with a long o) is the sealer you talk of.

That e at the end does make a difference.

I've always tried to use little or none on the sealants. Sometimes you just need a little dab to hold a gasket in place. RTV can be your friend but people tend to get carried away. What most don't see is the big globs that are on the inside of what they sealed. I've seen the globs break off and clog oil pickup screens and radiators.

Bruce,

I'm leaning towards none-at-all.
Besides if I use the tractor all of 30 hours a year, its a lot!
Thank you so much!

Different gaskets take different sealants.

Or none at all.
