I can't believe you recommended that - I was going to go out to the car for the jack before I sent this message - I thought, "there has GOT to be an easier way!" Anyway, I took everything apart and didn't reinstall until I did it away from the sink - for some reason - and I don't know why - I got it! Now it leaks! And it leaks right at that same spot. Can I put some putty in there or is the gasket ruined?
