Yes.....use just enough to hold the gasket in place & make sure both surfaces are clean, & be sure it does not shift out of position.

my 2 cents worth:

check and see that the new waterpump mating surface isnt warped. I have seen some new waterpumps that were defective out of the box. If it is good, then yes, permatex will help.

Good luck.
