Changing my timing belt tomorrow and doing the water pump (and everything else in there) at the same time. The water pump came with a gasket (see below). All the directions I'm reading up on say to use RTV. Sounds like Toyota switched to a gasket towards the end of the 1st gens lifetime
Seems like the gasket would be a hell of a lot easier (I know I would get RTV all over the place). Anyone have opinions?
