[DML] Re: Sealing transmission

Okay so now I'm confused, use the gaskets or not? I have Permatex
Hylomar sealant-isn't the Hylomar what they're sealed with from
factory? Since you guys have done this before, I won't use the
Hylomar; the last thing I want is a leaky trans. I couldn't find any
Anaerobic sealant (none of the auto stores carried it, and the local
parts stores wouldn't order it for me unless I got a case of 12!), but
I do have Permatex Black Silicon sealant, will that work instead of
the Hylomar? I didn't think the silicon could seal against oils for
extended periods of time, then again my Hylomar tube said it is only
oil *resistant*. What clearances will be affected from the gaskets?
Also do I use the silicon to seal the bolts that go through the case
halves as well or thread sealant or??? -----Dani B. #5003
