thermostat replacement

Recommended Posts

When putting the thermostat housing back, do I use instant gasket or not? ( I'm using new O rings and the mating surfaces are clean and cosmetically flat.) If yes, how much and where, and do I need to grease one side of the join?

I use gasket sealer, but not the silicone stuff (visions of it peeling off where it squeezes out of the joint and blocking water/ oil ways depending on where it is used), I use blue Hylomar. Light smear, no need to grease.
