What is the correct procedure with the gasket sealer
on the oil pump since there is no true gasket?

Apply to one or both surfaces, assemble wet, tacky, or dry?
I don't want any leaks!

I was surprised there was no gasket, I have never been a fan of silicone sealers but that is what Liberty said was used
so I ordered it.

use grey rtv it works pretty much only on aluminum and quite well. follow the directions on the tube and you'll be a set.

I do not know what model you have, but on the current model 2.5 that we build, we use a lint free cloth covered sponge to wet the pump surface before we apply the sealer. The sealer is made by Three-Bond.
