Smothering RTV is usually worse than a light coating. Especially because it will squish out around the outside, and inside and get sucked up into the water flow.
Hey man, thanks, It turns out the Water pumps leaking, for time #4......right out the bottom, so i went, and got a new one, the bearing pushed itself out, and the impeller was inset like less than 1/4 inch but more than 1/8. How odd...so this time, used the blue RTV SMOTHERD it and stick it on, gonna let it dry for 36 hours to make sure its dry, and see if that works.
Personally, I just give the gasket a light coating on either side of RTV, then slap it on. Never leaked. You just haven't had good luck it sounds like.
