Question Valley Gasket/Water Pump--Right Stuff or Hylomar?

Changing my head gaskets, valley gasket...well all the other gaskets associated...
While I'm in there, I will change my water pump. My question is, should I use Right Stuff or Hylomar on the water pump sealing surfaces and valley gasket ends/coolant ports?

Wish me luck on this project!!!

Cheers...

"My question is, should I use Right Stuff or Hylomar on the water pump sealing surfaces" Use nothing. Fit dry so long as you have the new style gasket. If you have paper use hylomar. "and valley gasket ends/coolant ports?" On the ends, use right stuff. Rest leave dry.

x2 I never put any sealent on water pump gaskets. I might use a little 3m weatherstrip glue to hold the gasket in place but no sealant.

On the Valley rubber seals I use right stuff in the ends and leave the center dry, I also put a little right stuff on the head ends around the last bolts to prevent seapage there!
