    Loctite 518 when reassembling pump?

    I'm replacing the stock impeller on my boat with a solas concord. When reassembling the pump the manual calls for using loctite 518 on all the mating surfaces. Do you all regasket the surfaces or skip the loctite?

    I don't know if it's needed but I used it on mine as a safeguard. I ordered it from Fastenal.

    You can also use "hylomar"... great stuff and alot cheaper than loctite! Also can be found at most "auto parts" stores.

    Easy way to remove old gasket?

    I actually have the 518 at home and have used it in the past, but removing the old gasket is always a pain. Does anyone have any easy way of removing the old gasket material?
