oil sump gasket question

hello gentlemen! a quick question concerning sealing up the oil pan. i have the new cork gasket but according to my shop manual, it just mentions putting a 2mm bead of hylosil and then bolting it up and makes no mention of the cork gasket. so should i use just the hylosil or the cork gasket? or use a bead of hylomar and the cork gasket? 3.9L V8 btw.

thanks!

I think I am the only one here on this board using the stock cork gasket (everyone else uses right stuff).
I have had great luck with it, no leaks in three years. No hylomar, just a small bead of rtv on the front cover seams and the rear main cap seams.

Cheers...

is 'the right stuff' the hylomar or is the brand 'right stuff' also, just apply a 2-3mm bead and torque it down. if i use the cork (since i already have it) and hylomar do i still torque to the reccomended specs? i just remember cork on valve covers and you used rtv and did not tighten much becasue if you did, the cork would tear.

Cork = hand tighten
If tightened too much, the pan bends then leaks happen.
