Would I be better off with a paper gasket or a gasket maker sealant. I put the paper gasket on a couple years ago and it started leaking around the water jacket so I finally figured out where the leak was coming from and why it kept overheating.

I honestly would use both. Put a thin layer of gasket sealer on each side of the paper gasket and apply it. I have never had any trouble with this method.

Thanks for the advice this is how I done it this time. How long do you think I should wait to put antifreeze back in it and see if it has any leaks this time? I've already bolted the cover back to the engine but haven't installed the harmonic balancer or water pump pulley or any hoses

Permatex #2 sealant on both sides of the gasket and you can fill it and start it immediately.

I didn't use the permatex wish I'd known that but I let the car sit till when I got off work this evening and filled it up and drove about 15-20 miles and all was well so far
