Hi
You use liquid gasket put round water pump
Just tighten up bolts finger tight leave to set for 2 hours
There are tightening torque m6 6.3-8.3 n-m
m8 16-21 n-m
m10 31.4-42.1

Make sure the water pump is flat not bowed
And clean mating flange and engine block

Go to Motor factors and get a couple of sheets of gasket paper
it only about 50p a sheet. Use your water pump as a template.
place the gasket paper over the water pump and use a small toffee
hammer or a 1/2 drive extension and chap round the water pump
to create a gasket its quite easy then use a ball bearing or small
socket to make the bolt holes, get a couple of sheets just in case
you make an arse of it! use a smear of instant gasket just to make sure.
I make gaskets pretty often and once you get in to the way of it
it dead easy. just take your time and you shouldnt have any problems.

There is a proper sealer which nissan recommend, thats what i used also for the sump etc. It is expensive at £25 for a small tube but it is very very good.
