where should i put rtv? on both sides of the new wp gasket??
yup but make sure you only put a thin layer on it or else it'll seep into the coolant passages and make its way around the system. Bad juju...

Make sure to use a genuine Subaru o-ring on the water outlet to radiator( the metal pipe pushed into pump). I used the one that came with an aftermarket pump and it leaked until I put a factory one in.

8 1/2 years. Impressive.
Oops, I mean over 10 years. Was counting from my post in 2006.

When I saw this thread pop up, it made me laugh to go back through and read it.
After all these years it is still pretty relavant too. I am still working on these things at times, and they still run great!

+1 About not needing a factory o-ring if the tube is good. I have never ordered one. I have used the factory metal gaskets though, if this is the right EA for those.
