1992 Dodge Spirit Question: water pump leaking after installing new one

installed water pump/timing belt kit, its leaking from the back-up plate.broke 2out of the 6 bolts, used a gasket sealant for water pump to back-up plate. how long will this hold? should i order a new back-up plate? -
Answer 1
I would order a new plate, I couldn't imagine the sealant holding up very long under that type of pressure. Always better to play it on the safe side than have a disaster happen! -
