Depending how bad the leak is, I would consider just adding more water than usual and running it... I have one right now that could use a new gasket but have been running it with extra water so that it does not run dry...
Are you one of these guys who asks his mechanic how much longer your bad breaks are going to last....?
The answer, BTW, is they will make it all the way to the scene of the accident.
IMHO, gaskets are cheap, if its bad fix it. But that's one of the reasons I run an All American canner. No gaskets to go bad.
