How many of you use the gasket between the transom and plate? Is it better to throw it in the trash and just use silicone?
Also the last guy that rebuilt my pump didn't use the o ring between the bowl and transom plate. He just stuffed it with silicone. It never leaked but was a bitch to remove.
Thoughts?

I used the gasket on my Rogers. I like it. I think it's cleaner than a bunch of silicone.

I use lexel caulk on mine and works good... stays nice and clear unlike silicone... and when you go to take it off you don't need a pry bar lol
