do you mean the cone that has the o-ring or the small plug that screws into the cone?
for the cone (with the o-ring), they recommend putting some anerobic gasket maker around the mating surface between the pump and cone. by design, you shouldn't need it as that is the purpose of the o-ring, but i have found that the fits are not what they should be sometimes and the gasket maker is required.
for the plug, i do wrap some teflon tape around it before installing.

I put 518 on the oring and the plug threads. You used to be able to buy the 518 cheap at Pep Boys...but I don't know if they still carry it.

I use to put a light coating of black RTV on the threads after filling it up...worked fine...

well looks like i have to take it all apart and put some gasket maker on there. i didnt put any on,when i put it back together the first time because it didnt look like it had any on it from the previous oil change.so,.... live and learn.at least im getting good at it,because i also did my brothers gsx ....and so now i have to redo his as well.so that will be 4 pump changes in a week....i will now be an expert
