Timing Cover Gasket

Looking for best practices from the experts if different than what Rave calls for regarding using Right Stuff, RTV, or Hylomar on the timing cover gasket.

I see that some call for an additional Gasket maker, and that some do not. I have the aftermarket gasket with the bead of RTV on it; do/should I add more? Appreciate the help!

I always use gasket compound. But be be very sparing with it as you don't want to block any ports or have little pieces spooge out that can fall off inside the engine and block a port or passage down the line somewhere.

I wouldn't use RTV, but I usually use that Permatex Aviation Form-a-gasket stuff. That's what my LR techs I know use as well.

Thanks Jimmy. I bolted it back together but figure others can use this as a reference. FWIW, The consensus is:

No sealant whatsoever, use genuine gasket!
Hylomar on one side!
Permatex Aviation on both sides!
RTV on both sides!
RTV on one side!

Im glad for the choices...

Recently used permatex anaerobic gasket maker for the RD oil pan. It was expensive but nice to know that any overage will remain fluid/won't harden and won't damage the engine.

I'm a big fan of Hylomar. I used it on my upper intake manifold gasket on the coolant ports, no problems in the past eight years...
