    Unhappy Oil Pump Block Off

    I just installed the oil pump block off on my ski. The kit did not come with a gasket, and when I called the vendor, he stated that the kit did not require a gasket. Looking at foolboogie's motor it looks like some blue gasket material oozing out from the block off. It would seem that the vendor was wrong. Any feedback? What type of sealant should I use? Would the copper permatex I used for exhaust gaskets do it?

    I just used a little bit of RTV on the block off

    you just want to keep moisture out of there

    either use the old gasket, make a gasket, or seal it with some RTV
