New gasket or can I just use permatex?

I'm cleaning and rebuilding the carb on my Tecumseh 10hp HM-100 and I have a question. The intake pipe gasket broke in pieces when I took the carb off. Half is on the motor and half on the pipe.

1). When I re-install the carb do I need to replace the gasket (Tecumseh PN27915A) of can I just use some Permatex Gasket Maker?

2). If I get a new gasket do I install it dry or do I use some type of gasket cement with it?

Thanks in advance.

IF you get a new gasket install it dry no blue,orange or black glue. I would not use anything other than a new gasket in the first place.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

Permatex would work, it will just make it more difficult to remove and clean next time.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

If the original gasket is no longer available as a repair part, you can also buy a blank sheet of gasket material and then cut out your own with an X-acto knife.

I bought a gasket today at a parts supply store here in Winnipeg, along with the needle seat that was missing from the kit I got online.

Thanks for the help.

if you lightly coat a gasket with Never Seize it will come right off next time

If you want the least amount of problems with a Tec carb, replace all the gaskets/o-rings and start new. Been there done that. They are all cheap insurance so you start from a base line.
