Ordered pump from NAPA. What type of gasket sealer should I use. It would be a big help for any info on this.Thank you Tony.

No need to remove stat or water crossover. The bolts typically come out hard on those. Be careful! Use plenty of WD40 or whatever is your favorite. Just need to remove lower rad hose and 1 heater hose. For a non-AC car.

a little RTV (Ultra Black) on the gasket won’t hurt.

Tony, I would get hold of a shop manual for your Buick. Takes the guess work out of repairs. Thanks. John
