i am going to replace the water pump on a 560 SEL this weekend. do I need to use a silicone sealant for the pump to engine block contact surfaces? the gasket that came with the water pump looks like paper.

Yes, both mating surfaces of the gasket get coated with gray silicone WP gasket sealer.

Thanks for the kind words guys!
