Permatex gasket maker or just gasket? Or both?

Putting on brand new cylinder , head and piston on the 100 dollar Honda QT50 I recently purchased that gas very low compression. The kit cane with head and cylinder gaskets and also a tube of grey prematurely gasket masker. Just curious on what you’ve all found to work the best. Thanks Moped army

Don't use that sealant on anything.

Also, there is no Honda Qt50, but that's ok, we understand

Ha ha yes I meant Yamaha, can’t you see how I’m excited I am?!! Thank you for your insight

Do not use RTV anywhere that it can come in contact with gasoline.

Gasket maker is different than gasket sealant, and generally should not be used on a gasket.

Even though this is specific to Permatex brand, there is a lot of handy info here: https://www.permatex.com/heres-how/product-guide/
