REBUILDING LEVER TYPE HEATER CONTROL VALVE

1977 MG Midget

Heater problem
1977 MG Midget 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 47000 miles

Im in the process of putting together a new heater control water diverter valve. Lever type used in the later midgets. My question is do you put any type of gasket sealer on the two gaskets that go between the inlet and outlet part of the valve? Or do you just bolt the unit together real snug. I dont see anywhere in the shop manual where it says to use gasket sealer. Thanks for the advice.

If you have anew gasket, it may not require any sealer. If there isnt a gasket I would use silicone to glue the two pieces together.I recommend GMS (General Motors Sealant) available at any GM dealer parts dept, it is really good stuff, pricey but good
