Anaerobic Sealer, do I use my gaskets with it?

Well I replaced the seal an o ring on my dana 20 intermediate shaft and I have to seal and bolt everything back up. I want to get it done and not have to worry about it at all. So in my search for the best sealant I came across several posts about anaerobic sealer. I couldn't figure out if I use the gaskets with this stuff or just put it on there by itself. If I do use the gaskets with it do I apply it to both sides of the gasket?

Also, is there anywhere I can get this shit for less than 26 bucks for what looks to be a rather small tube? Guy at Parts Plus is going to try to get me a tube and says he'll "hook me up" but anything more than 20 bucks seems like an arm and a leg unless it's a huge tube

yeah it's worth it ,
but usually only used by itself on highly machined close tolerance fitted parts . ( like a one piece rear main oil seal housing )

hence the term anaerobic ( cures in the absence of air )
might be overkill for your application ,
and hell to remove once it's set up .

more time now i have had great luck with ghetto 6-pack cardboard gaskets and the permatex anaerobic stuff (SNPA boxes ). it's a bit on the pricey side, but the stuff goes a long way in the little tubes. if you dig around on the net you can probably save $5 or so.

cheers
