1987 Chevy S-10 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual

I have a 1987 chevy s 10 pickup truck, I just put a new oil pump on it, my question is do you need to put a gasket between the oil pump and the block?
Do you

Its been a while with this vehicle-if the new oil pump comes with the gasket use it-otherwise you go as is-

If it sucks air instead of oil

If, for any reason, the oil pump can't deliver its normal dose of oil, it's bad news for the engine. An oil pump failure is just as bad as cardiac arrest because the results are almost always fatal. Loss of oil pressure means loss of the protective oil film between the bearings and their journals. With no oil to keep the surfaces apart, the bearings wipe and fail.
