Be sure the surface for the gasket seat is clean... It should seal

i really dont know when i turned the truck on it took about a minute for oil to start running down the side of the cooler from the top so i put sealer all on top and gonna let it dry and see where that goes and hopefully it stops but, if it keeps leaking im thinking its the rear main comming down dripping, the truck has 230xxx. so its a good probably. see what your thoughts in the picture. maybe better pictures next time..
