I just cleaned the housing, the mating surface on the head, and put in a new gasket...

PLUS

I smeared Ultra-Black RTV into the housing groove, installed the gasket/o-ring, then smeared Ultra-Black over the gasket/o-ring and housing mating area...........

On the thermostat side I smeared some Ultra-Black RTV around the o-ring.

Let dry before adding water.

It's not leaking, and hopefully never will.........
