    Exclamation head gasket

    Should I place the head gasket for my 99" Bonneville dry?I have black silicon gasket maker if needed.This is my first time doing this I read the book over and over again but I want to make sure I do this right.

    Hi rlotis,

    The only time you would use a sealant on a head gasket is if it's a stamped-steel gasket, in which case you'd use a copper-coat type sealant (but never a silicone sealant). If you're installing a composite type gasket, install it dry.
