I am installing a new water pump, and it appears one of the long mounting bolts on the drivers side of the pump had some sort of thread sealer on it. The workshop manual does not reference any sealer to be used.

Shoud I be using a sealer? If so, any recommendations? Does this bolt help mount the oil cooler?

Thanks,

No and no.

Just put the bolts back... more then likely you got some gray RTV sealant in the hole or well whoever did the water pump last and that's what is on the threads.

All I ever find on the waterpump bolts is corrosion when I'm pulling them out, road salt gets everywhere up here.
