Oil cooler problems

I was changing my oil today and when I removed the oil filter, a spring/washer fell out. this was a new one on me so now I am in the process of putting a new one in. My question is, when I put on the new gasket, do I need to put any kind of sealant on the gasket or just put it on? This will be my first time changing one, it will be a few days before the parts come in so I want to have everything ready.

Are you putting on a new filter/cooler adapter? The gasket that goes on the block does not need sealant. Make sure you have the oil cooler O-rings as well. A "pony" pipe clamp works good to draw the cooler headers onto the cooler itself. Cheers!

No sealant should be used. The gaskets go on dry, or only use some high tack to hold the gaskets on while installing the cooler. Using sealant give a chance of when squeezed out could end up going through the system and possibly clog something up.
