    When replacing the gaskets do i need to use rtv, It does not look like there was any there in the first place, is that the same for the np205?

    my drain plug was rusted so bad on my 465 that i couldnt get it off, so i drained it through the PTO cover on the drivers side, uh oh, i ripped the gasket, rather then going through the pain and anguish of getting another gasket, i squeezed some blue RTV on it after i cleaned the gasket off, worked really well./forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    But in many cases, it will leak without RTV. You have to decide how the sealing surface looks, the mounting location, the gasket material, the fluid it's sealing, how often you take it apart, yada yada... basically, It's up to you how you do it, and how easy you want the cleanup to be when you have to put it back together. For the top of the 465, I wouldn't say the need for RTV is there ..........
