When to use Gasket Sealants?


Kent at ************** says to use Permaflex Aircraft Sealant on paper and cork. That's what I am doing.

I know not to use gasket sealants on head gaskets but what about other areas of the engine? I am installing my rebuilt turbo this weekend and have several seals that need to go in:

Oil Line Seal
Oil Line Return Seal

Everyone seems to have their opinion on this, I'd rather hear from someone that's been doing this for a while. Do I need to use sealant after prepping both surfaces and installing a brand new gasket?
