water pump questions

Thanks, in advance, for your guidance. The water pump on my 1952 200 Deluxe died and my new one finally came from Kanter. I've read conflicting information regarding the installation...specifically whether to use some sealant for the gasket or not.

Also, the other issue is once the water pump is installed, is it ok to run the car right away or wait a day? I read that I should turn the water pump manually before starting the car. True or false? I also plan to add fresh antifreeze. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, as always!
