300tdi sump

hi all.

i had to replace the sump on my discovery the other day due to the front edge leaking. i cleaned up the block and the new sump,and used a suitable sealant, cant remember the name but it wasnt silicone. anyway after a few days it has began to leak again at the back this time. i cant find a gasket listed anywhere so am assuming it is supposed to be a liquid gasket, what sealant to you all use? i dont mind if its expensive, its a carp job to do without having to do it twice.! ha.

thanks again.

I gave up on the sump after doing it 4 times! It normally lasts around a month before it starts to weep. I have tried loads of different sealants, hylomar was the best but still weeps after a while. I will be doing mine again soon so I too will be interested in the best sealant to use.
